Senator McCaskill in line for some high flying

Friday, 27 December 2013 14:14 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The company owned by U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill's husband has bought an airplane the Missouri senator could occasionally use.  McCaskill's office disclosed the purchase Friday by Joseph Shepard's company, which took possession of the plane a week ago. The plane will be used primarily for Shepard's business.
 
 
In 2011, McCaskill, a Democrat, sold a plane for which she and Shepard had an ownership stake. Before that, McCaskill reimbursed the federal treasury $88,000 for taxpayer funded travel and paid St. Louis County about $320,000 in back property taxes, interest and penalties related to that plane.
 
   McCaskill's office said Friday no taxpayer dollars will be used when she flies on this airplane. An independent company is managing compliance with tax and financial reporting. A property declaration is to be filed Jan. 2.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal by a Guatemalan woman seeking to overturn the adoption of her biological child by a Carthage couple.

Missouri minimum wage to rise

Friday, 27 December 2013 13:46 Published in Local News
Many low-wage workers in Missouri will make a little more money next year.  Starting January 1st, Missouri's minimum wage will go up 15-cents to $7.50 an hour.  The minimum wage for tipped workers will increase 12-cents to $3.75 an hour.  Missouri's minimum wage automatically rises to keep pace with increases in the cost of living thanks to a law approved by voters in 2006.  The rate hike is expected to benefit about 104-thousand low-wage workers in the state.  An analysis by the nonpartisan Economic Policy Institute estimates the increase will boost economic growth in Missouri by about 11-million dollars.
