If Missouri goes through with using a common anesthetic in two executions later this year, it could have a very real impact on hospitals throughout the U.S.
Gov. Jay Nixon said Monday the state will be moving forward with the executions.
The European Union says they will consider possible export limits of the anesthetic propofol if Missouri uses the drug in executions scheduled for this month and next.
The U.S. gets the vast majority of the common anesthetic from the EU.
