The Missouri Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to a law that raised the state's licensing fees on animal shelters.

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a lawsuit filed by the Humane Society of the United States and two other animal shelters was moot. The court noted the suit challenged the procedure by which a 2010 licensing law was passed, but that lawmakers had changed the law again in 2011.

The City Council passed a resolution Monday to explore the possibility of using the building to display exhibits for a firefighter museum.
