   The Missouri Ethics Commission says a former Rockwood School Board member has violated the state's conflict-of-interest law.  

   The commission found that over a two year period Steve Smith voted more than a dozen times on construction orders that allowed his employer, Glenn Construction to raise its fees on contracts with the school board.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Smith has been hit with a $10,000 fine, but if he pays within 45 days, the amount drops to $2,000.  If he violates the conflict-of-interest law again in the next two years, Smith would be on the hook for the other $8,000.  

   Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich had come to the same conclusion in his February audit of the Rockwood School District. 

   Smith served on the Rockwood Board of Education as a Glenn Construction employee between May 2010 and June 2012.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House member plans to seek the Democratic nomination for state auditor next year. Jay Swearingen is a two-term House member from Kansas City. He says he'll make an official campaign announcement in October. Swearingen is a vice president of the Missouri Credit Union Association. He was first elected to the Legislature in 2010 and serves on committees dealing with tax policy, professional registration, financial institutions and economic development. Republican Auditor Tom Schweich is completing his first term. He defeated Democratic incumbent Susan Montee in 2010. State campaign finance reports show Schweich had about $294,000 on hand at the end of June. Swearingen had more than $11,000. The auditor's office will be the only statewide position on Missouri's November 2014 ballot. Filing officially begins next February.

   Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich says his office will audit the state agency assigned to protect the environment and public health from hazardous waste.  

   The announcement follows reports of problems with oversight at the cleanup of the former Carondelet Coke site in St. Louis.   A St. Louis Post-Dispatch report says that clean up cost taxpayers more than $12 million. while former owners Laclede Gas and SGL Group were paying less than a million dollars combined and Carondelet Coke owner J. Donald Crane was getting off the hook entirely.  The 42 acre site had been considered one of the most contaminated in the state.

   Schweich announced the audit of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Hazardous Waste Program Friday morning.  State law gives the auditor the authority to audit state agencies and programs.

   Anyone who would like to provide information during the audit process is encouraged to contact the State Auditor's office at 800-347-8597 or by email at moaudit@auditor.mo.gov.
