Judge strikes down Missouri laws on cellphone towers

Tuesday, 22 October 2013 13:47 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri judge has struck down a pair of new laws that had limited the ability of cities and counties to regulate cellphone towers.

Cole County Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce ruled that lawmakers violated procedural requirements of the state constitution when passing the bills earlier this year.

She said the bills' title of "relating to telecommunications" did not encompass everything in the bills. She noted that one bill also contained provisions related to railroad crossings and utility rights-of-way. Another bill contained provisions related to cable TV services, which she said are not legally the same as telecommunications.

Joyce also said lawmakers had changed the bills' original purpose.

Gov. Jay Nixon and legislative leaders had touted the legislation as a way to encourage expansion of high-speed Internet and wireless phone service.

Investigation continues into clinic crash

Tuesday, 22 October 2013 13:47 Published in Local News

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - Investigators continue to look into an accident in which a minivan crashed into a suburban St. Louis health urgent care center.

 

   Authorities on Tuesday identified the man killed in the wreck as Marvin H. Meyer, the 88-year-old driver of the minivan. His 81-year-old wife, Gloria, remains hospitalized in stable condition.

 

   Police say the minivan was pulling out of the entrance to a St. Charles Wal-Mart store Sunday when it was struck by a pickup truck. The impact caused the minivan to go off the roadway and hit the Our Urgent Care clinic.

 

   No one inside the urgent care facility was injured. Occupants of the truck also were not hurt.

The Missouri Legislative Black Caucus is pushing back against Governor Jay Nixon's plan to change eligibility for food stamps.

State Senator Jamilah Nasheed spoke out at Mount Airy Missionary Baptist Church in North St. Louis. She says 58,000 Missouri adults could lose access to food stamp. Nixon has proposed removing Missouri from a waiver that allows childless adults to receive food stamps without meeting certain work requirements.

Nasheed spoke to Fox 2 News, "This is not the right thing to do. Have compassion for the poor, have a heart for the poor, and we`re going to do everything that we can to reverse this decision."

Nixon defends the decision, saying federal food stamp benefits could decrease.
