Mo. Senators pushing legislation to make information available about grants and budget cuts
The legislation would require details about federal grants worth at least $1 million to be posted on the Missouri Accountability Portal, which is an online tool for tracking state expenses. It also would require the governor to post a daily report on that website listing how much money he has withheld from state agencies and programs to help balance the budget.

Attorney Gerry Greiman argued for the plaintiffs in one of two lawsuits against the map. He says like-minded people should be joined together in the same district.
