Tax cuts on tap again for Missouri legislators

Monday, 30 December 2013 03:36 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers plan to make another attempt at cutting income taxes during their 2014 session.
   Democratic Governor Jay Nixon vetoed an income tax cut bill passed earlier this year, and majority party Republicans were unable to override it.
   House and Senate leaders say an income tax cut will be an early priority when lawmakers convene January 8th.
   Representative T.J. Berry, who sponsored the vetoed bill, says next year's version will leave out some of the provisions to which Nixon objected. One of those dropped sections would have automatically cut state income tax rates even further if Congress enacted a law making it easier for states to collect taxes on sales made over the Internet.
   Bill sponsor Senator Will Kraus says lawmakers want to simplify the legislation and lower its cost.
 
   HONOLULU (AP) — The Obama administration says its rehabilitated health insurance website has seen a December surge in customer sign-ups, pushing enrollment past the 1 million mark.
   Independent experts say that should put total enrollment in the new private insurance plans offered on both federal and state-run markets at about 2 million people through the end of the year.
   That would be about two-thirds of the administration's original goal of signing up 3.3 million by Dec. 31, and would represent a significant improvement given the technical problems that crippled the federal market during much of the fall. The overall goal remains to enroll 7 million people by March 31.
 

14 dead after suicide bomber on Russian bus

Monday, 30 December 2013 02:52 Published in National News
   MOSCOW (AP) - Russia's main investigative agency says a Volgograd bus explosion was caused by a suicide bomber and officials raised the death toll to 14.
   The bombing comes a day after 17 people died in a railway station bombing also blamed on a suicide bomber.
   Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said in a statement that Monday's explosion on an electric bus involved a similar bomb, proving a link between the two attacks.
   Public health officials said that at least 14 people were killed in explosion during morning rush hour.
   No one has claimed responsibility for either bombing, but they came a few months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov threatened new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including Olympics in Sochi in February.
