Local political leaders are it calling an impressive display of bipartisan support and compromise. The U.S. House on Tuesday voted to name the new Interstate-70 bridge over the Mississippi River as the "Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge."
Missouri lawmakers had wanted to name the span after the Cardinal's legend. Illinois lawmakers had wanted to name the bridge to honor veterans. Tuesday's 395-to-2 House vote would do both.
The measure now moves on the U.S. Senate.

School board members won't be able to hire family members for supervisory positions in the Fox School District if they adopt a proposed anti-nepotism policy at tonight's board meeting.
The Jefferson County district has been struggling with the issue since the district hired Kelly Nash as food services director late last year. Nash is a former McDonald's assistant manager with a high school diploma and no advanced certifications. She's the daughter-in-law of Linda Nash, who was president of the school board at the time.
The policy to be voted on tonight would prohibit board members from hiring relatives to supervisor positions, such as principals, assistant principals and department directors.
