JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - State officials are projecting that 24,000 new jobs would be created if Missouri chooses to expand its Medicaid program.
 
The Department of Economic Development said Friday that raising the program's eligibility to levels called for by the federal health care law would bring $9.9 billion in new wages to the state.
 
Gov. Jay Nixon has asked lawmakers to expand the program to include adults earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level - a little less than $33,000 annually for a family of four. Nixon's administration estimates that 300,000 Missourians could join the program under those levels.
 
The Republican-led Legislature has repeatedly rejected expanding the program and argued the state couldn't afford it. But a Republican House member introduced legislation this week that would partially expand the program.
 
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The police chiefs in Missouri's two largest cities are asking the state Supreme Court for guidance on red-light camera ordinances, which are increasingly being called into question.
 
St. Louis chief Sam Dotson and Kansas City chief Darryl Forte wrote to the Missouri Supreme Court on Thursday, saying that inconsistent rulings from lower courts have led to confusion for police and municipalities that operate red-light cameras.
 
It wasn't clear if or when the Supreme Court would take up the issue. A message left with a court spokeswoman on Friday was not returned.
 
Dozens of Missouri communities use the cameras. Police say they can save lives at dangerous intersections. Opponents question their constitutionality and contend the cameras are aimed at generating revenue, not public safety.

Man charged in death of fan at Arrowhead Stadium

Friday, 21 February 2014 12:49 Published in Local News
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A northeast Missouri man is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of a Kansas City Chiefs fan in a parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium.
 
Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced the charge Friday against 25-year-old Joshua T. Bradley of Independence. He was arrested early Friday and is being held on $75,000 bond.
 
Smithville resident Kyle Van Winkle died after being confronted by a group of fans Dec. 1 when he was found in the wrong vehicle in the parking lot. Police say the Jeep looked like one that Van Winkle rode in to the game.
 
Peters Baker said Friday that Bradley hit Van Winkle more than once during the confrontation.
 
An autopsy found that Van Winkle died from a blow to the head.
