   A Missouri House panel is moving ahead with a two-tiered budget that makes education funding partly dependent on the strength of the economy.  

   A plan endorsed Wednesda) by the House Budget Committee would add $122 million to the state's $3 billion in basic school funding. If state revenues meet Governor Jay Nixon's more optimistic projections, the House budget would provide a $278 million increase for schools - still less than Nixon wanted.  

   The House plan would also bar the universities from offering resident tuition rates to students living in the U.S. illegally.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The top budget writer in the Missouri House has outlined a spending plan that omits Governor Jay Nixon's proposed Medicaid expansion.

The plan presented Thursday by Budget Committee Chairman Rick Stream would also provide a smaller increase for public colleges and universities than Nixon had proposed for the 2014 fiscal year.

The Democratic governor wants to accept about $900 million from the federal government to expand Medicaid health care eligibility to nearly 260,000 lower-income adults. But Stream said he left that out of the budget because it runs contrary to Republican philosophy against bigger government.

Nixon had proposed a $34 million funding increase for colleges and universities. Stream's proposed budget pares that back to $20 million. It also provides less money for early childhood programs than Nixon had sought.
