JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has developed a proposal to help more Missourians pursue careers in mental health care.
 
The governor planned to announce details Wednesday during stops in Columbia and Kansas City. His office said the announcement would involve a proposal for funding in the next state budget.
 
Nixon told higher education officials in October he would be proposing an initiative to train professionals in such fields as psychiatry, specialty nursing and applied behavioral analysis.
 
He said 72 of Missouri's 114 counties do not have a licensed psychiatrist, while 90 do not have a licensed behavioral analyst.

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - So far, more than 50 instructors have been approved to train Illinois residents applying for applications to carry concealed weapons.

The Daily Herald reports 54 instructors have been OK'd for the program - most of them in northern Illinois.

Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says as many as 1,000 more applications have been received.

In July, Illinois became the last state in the nation to approve a law allowing the public possession of firearms.

Anyone who wants to apply for a concealed-carry license must complete 16 hours of training from a state-approved instructor. The instructor also must use the state's training curricula.

Applications for concealed-carry licenses will be available from state police beginning Jan. 5.

A list of instructors can be found here.
