The Missouri House is debating all 13 bills Tuesday that make up the state’s proposed budget for next year. Lawmakers are offering up several amendments to the budget – one in particular would have shifted 150-thousand dollars from the state’s biodiesel fund to Alzheimer’s patients. It was sponsored by Independent House Member Tracy McCreery of St. Louis County.
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.
