JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee has endorsed a measure, known as "right to work," that would bar labor contracts from requiring that all employees pay union fees.
The House Workforce Development and Workforce Safety Committee also voted on Monday to advance legislation that would change how unions can collect fees.
It would require unions to get annual written authorization to collect fees that are automatically deducted from a worker's paycheck.
If they clear the Legislature, both measures would go on a statewide ballot. The Republican sponsors say sending the bills to voters would get around a likely veto by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
"Right to work" is a top priority of Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The first bill being considered by a Missouri House committee this year would prohibit the payment of union fees from being a condition of employment.
The legislation, known as "right to work," is scheduled for a Monday hearing in the House Workplace Development and Workplace Safety Committee.
It is a top priority for Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka. He led a rally of about 100 activists in support of the bill before the legislative session opened last week.
While the proposal is at the top of the House agenda, Senate leaders haven't been as optimistic about it passing this year.
The measure is sponsored by Republican Rep. Eric Burlison, of Springfield.

   There's more fallout from a loaded handgun found inside a bathroom at the Missouri Capitol last month.  

   The aide to House Speaker Tim Jones who left that gun behind has resigned.  The speaker's chief of staff, Tom Smith, confirmed Thursday that Dave Evans had resigned September 27.  

   Smith says he was satisfied with the corrective actions Evans agreed to after the incident but that Evans thought it was best for him to step down.  

   A 2011 Missouri law allows elected officials and their employees to carry concealed firearms inside the Capitol if they have permits.

   A congressional staffer won't face any charges after leaving his loaded handgun in a mens' room at the Missouri Capitol. 

   Police say the gun belongs to 64 year old David Evans, legislative assistant to House Speaker Tim Jones. And Evans has a conceal-carry permit.  

   Capitol Police say the Kahr CM9 9mm pistol was in a holster and had a hollow point bullet in the chamber, along with six others in the magazine.  It was found Friday morning on top of a toilet paper dispenser in a restroom near a House hearing room.

   Police say no charges will be filed because Evans didn't break any laws.  State law allows Missouri lawmakers and their staff to carry concealed weapons in the Capitol, as long as they have a permit.
