JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House is not planning to give Gov. Jay Nixon's administration data related to an attempted access of the list of gun permit holders.
The Office of Administration requested computer logs last week after a House computer was used to access a secure website containing the gun data. The House computer used credentials the state had previously provided to a federal agent.
House Speaker Tim Jones says the attempted access was part of an investigation into the Nixon administration. House Clerk Adam Crumbliss sent a letter to the Nixon administration Monday that says releasing the House computer data could compromise the ongoing investigation.
Commissioner of Administration Doug Nelson says the access was unauthorized because the information on the website had been intended for use by law enforcement.
The hospital is Missouri's only maximum and intermediate security psychiatric hospital and is the oldest public mental health facility west of the Mississippi River.
The Department of Mental Health is proposing a new 300 bed, high-security facility that would cost about $211 million.
Officials say current facilities are antiquated and a new building would save utility cots and make for a safer facility.
Fulton State Hospital is in Fulton, Missouri, about 100 miles west of St. Louis.
