House Democrats are backing legislation they say would toughen Missouri’s ethics standards. As Marshall Griffin tells us from Jefferson City, the bill would restore many provisions recently struck down by the State Supreme Court.

That law was tossed out because of the way legislators approved the law. Nixon will outline the element he wants to see in a new law during a news conference today.
