  Missouri lawmakers are considering legislation that would require public school districts to sell certain vacant buildings to charter schools that request them.

Republican Rep. David Wood of Versailles on Monday discussed the measure, which is part of an effort to revamp the state's student transfer law.

Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones is hitting the road, planning to visit 20 cities this week to speak with voters and community leaders about the upcoming legislative session.
