Mo. Sen. Kurt Schaefer (R, Columbia) holds a press conference in his office on Apr. 16, 2013, where he states that ATF took part in the request for Missouri's CCW list. To Schaefer's right is Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R).
A crowd estimated at more than 1,000 crammed into the Rotunda of the Missouri Capitol Tuesday to hear Governor Jay Nixon (D) call for expanding Medicaid to an additional 300,000 residents, nearly 260,000 of them by next year.
He told the crowd that the people he wants to add are those with low-paying jobs that don’t include health coverage.
The Missouri Senate has rejected a bill that would have allowed additional water and sewer companies to seek permission for surcharges to build new infrastructure.
Currently, only water companies in St. Louis County can impose such a surcharge between formal rate cases. Other water companies must get approval for a rate increase from the state Public Service Commission.
