Mo. Lt. Gov. Kinder to launch waste website

Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder said he plans to launch a state website to gather tips about wasteful spending in Missouri government.

Kinder, a Republican, said  the website should be running soon. He detailed plans for it while asking a legislative committee on Wednesday to increase his office budget by about $38,500, to get it back to its level in 2009.

Kinder said if the website and his staff don't identify enough wasteful spending to offset the appropriation, he'll return the additional money.
