JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Some Missouri lawmakers want the state to open an economic development office in Israel. A spending plan embraced by a Senate committee would insert $200,000 into the next state budget to open an office in Israel.
   
The Senate and House have each passed bills that would require the Department of Economic Development to establish an office in Israel.  The office would be focused on developing partnerships between Missouri and Israeli businesses in agriculture, biotechnology and other emerging fields.
   
Missouri already has economic development offices in Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.

Jefferson City, MO -- Missouri Governor Jay Nixon says that plans to rebuild the deteriorating  Fulton State Mental Hospital are moving forward.
 
The Governor announced Monday that Parsons-Brinckeroff will be the lead design firm for the project.  Nixon says the project is a long-overdue public safety priority which has strong bi-partisan support.  
Upon final completion of contract negotiations with Parsons-Brinckerhoff, work will begin on the planning and design of the new hospital.
 
Construction of the facility is expected to begin in the late spring or early summer of 2015 and be completed in 2016.  The cost of the new facility is expected to be about $211 million.
 
The Missouri Department of Economic Development estimates that the project could create more than 2,500 jobs during its construction.
 
Fulton State Hospital is the oldest state psychiatric hospital west of the Mississippi River and houses the state’s only maximum security psychiatric facility. It opened in 1851.

   CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A $400 million expansion announced by Monsanto in April is starting in earnest with a ceremonial groundbreaking at the Chesterfield research center site.

   The agricultural products company says it expects to bring 675 new jobs to the region over the next three years.

   Gov. Jay Nixon was scheduled to join Monsanto officials at the ceremony Tuesday, just as he did when the company first unveiled the project at an international biotechnology conference in Chicago.

   The Missouri Department of Economic Development has said Monsanto can expect to receive more than $31 million in state tax incentives if it creates the expected number of new jobs.
