St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - One local television station's undercover report on school safety, is the inspiration for a new piece of legislation.

 

Missouri State Representative Stacey Newman wrote on her blog, that she has filed House Bill 1522. The bill would make it a felony to "intentionally make a threat to the security of a public school or building” in order to expose security issues. Newman says the bill could stop situations like the one when a KSDK employee took a hidden camera in five schools, including Kirkwood High School.

 

The employee was not stopped at Kirkwood and the school was forced to go into lockdown when officials could not find the employee or verify that they were at the school as part of a story.

 

KSDK has apologized for the incident and the Kirkwood Superintendent accepted the apology.

Supreme Court: Damaged school suit comes too late

Friday, 24 January 2014 13:47 Published in Local News
BENLD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Supreme Court says a southern Illinois school district can't sue an architectural firm for building a school over an underground coal mine that later collapsed, causing the school to be torn down.
 
   In a unanimous decision, justices ruled Friday that Gillespie Community School District's "fraudulent representation" claims against Wight & Company came after a statute of limitations passed.
 
   The elementary school in Benld (ben-ELD') was built in 2002. It closed in 2009 after being damaged and declared unsafe because of mine subsidence, which occurs when land moves or sinks because of a collapsed underground mine.
 
   Justices say the district's 2010 suit was filed too late. That upholds decisions by lower courts.
   A reconstructed elementary school opened this fall.
 
   Benld is about 40 miles northeast of St. Louis.

Hearing set over lawsuit against East St. Louis

Friday, 24 January 2014 13:46 Published in Local News
BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois judge is taking up an activist's lawsuit that seeks the ouster of East St. Louis' mayor and four council members for alleged misconduct.
 
The Belleville News-Democrat reports the lawsuit by Matt Hawkins of Civic Alliance of East St. Louis was to be the subject of a St. Clair County Circuit Court hearing Friday afternoon.
 
Hawkins wants the judge to fine the city $435,000. City officials have requested that the lawsuit be dismissed, claiming it was improperly filed.
 
Hawkins alleges that city officials violated state law related to the Freedom of Information Act and related to the administration of tax increment financing districts.
