St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Missouri House members began hearings today on how the state deals with failing school districts.
A bill passed by the Senate in February calls for allowing students enrolled in struggling schools to transfer to a better one within their home district. Only if students could not get into a better school in their home district, would they be allowed to transfer to another district. In those cases the unaccredited district would pay for some of the tuition.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are advocating for more restrictions on welfare recipients after a state audit raised questions over whether benefits are being used properly.
The report identified more than 300 cases in which Missouri welfare recipients spent their benefits exclusively outside the state during a three-month period.
Under legislation passed by the House, recipients would be kicked off the program if they don't spend their benefits within Missouri once every 90 days.
Lawmakers are also debating whether to loosen restrictions on where welfare money can be spent and who qualifies for assistance.
The House measure would allow people to use welfare dollars to buy food at liquor stores. A Senate bill would open the federal food stamps program to some drug felons.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The vast majority of the country's 32 death penalty states refuse to disclose the source of their execution drugs.
A review by The Associated Press has found that the states cloaked in secrecy include some with the most active death chambers. Texas, Florida, Oklahoma and Missouri are among them.
The secrecy comes as most states now rely on loosely regulated "compounding pharmacies" for execution drugs but refuse to name them. They cite concerns about backlash that could endanger the supplier's safety.
Defense attorneys question how an inmate's constitutional right against cruel and unusual punishment can be guaranteed if nothing is known about the drug being used to kill him.
Proponents say forcing states to reveal their drug source can amount to obstruction of justice by delaying executions.
