Durbin headed to Washington for Syria debate

Tuesday, 03 September 2013 02:01 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin has cancelled a Tuesday luncheon appearance before Chicago's business and political elite to head to Washington and begin preparing for congressional debate on possible action in Syria.

   The No. 2 Senate Democrat was among the 15 members of Congress briefed on the situation by telephone last week.

   President Barack Obama says he'll seek congressional approval for military strikes against the Assad regime. He's trying to rally support among Americans and congressmen.

   Durbin was to speak about sentencing for non-violent drug offenders Tuesday before the City Club of Chicago. His office issued a notice Monday that as a member of Senate leadership and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he'll be in Washington preparing for debate instead.

 

Bus-based rapid transit could be coming to St. Louis

Tuesday, 03 September 2013 01:36 Published in Around Town

   Regional planners are looking for a more efficient way to get riders to work and back.  

   The St. Louis Rapid Transit Connector Study is an examination of bus-based rapid transit services in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. The project will analyze four possible corridors and pick the two most likely to meet the study's goals, then advance for federal funding.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Metro Transit, the East-West Gateway Coordinating Council and the Missouri Department of Transportation are behind the push.  

   Public meetings will be held in September 2013 to gather public input on two final, recommended projects to be advanced into competition for Federal funding.  The same meeting will be repeated at three locations along the proposed routes.

MO AG to host crime summit for STL & KC police

Tuesday, 03 September 2013 01:09 Published in Local News

   Hot spot policing, reducing gun violence and reintegrating former felons into society will be among the topics discussed at an Urban Crime Summit being held in St. Louis and Kansas City.  

   Police chiefs, mayors and prosecutors from both sides of the state will join with law enforcement experts this month at Attorney General Chris Koster's four-day summit - two days in KC and two in St. Louis.  

   Both of Missouri's largest cities consistently rank in the top 10 nationally for high levels of violent crime.  

   Koster said in a statement that violent crime is hurting Missouri families and the state's economy.
