 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is urging federal regulators to require that publicly traded companies report any political spending to their shareholders.
 
Kander, a Democrat, says investors want to know how money has been spent for political purposes by the companies in which they invest.
 
Kander's office says he wrote to the Securities and Exchange Commission to support a rulemaking petition submitted in 2011 by several law professors.
   
 
 ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis may follow the lead of urban school districts in places like Chicago, Philadelphia and New York and turn over the reins of the city's most troubled schools to outside groups.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that superintendent Kelvin Adams proposed Thursday night that if any of the district's 18 lowest-performing schools fails to meet specified targets next school year, nonprofit entities would be hired to run them in 2015-16.
 
Adams made the proposal to the Special Administrative Board that oversees the district.
 
Under that plan, the schools would be operated independently but still belong to the district. The operator could hire staff and set curriculum, but the district would remain accountable for test scores and enrollment.
 

"McCaskill on Main Street" Tour kicks off Monday

Friday, 14 March 2014 08:28 Published in Local News
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill is planning a series of town hall meetings and other events across Missouri next week to discuss expanding job and business opportunities.
The tour, dubbed "McCaskill on Main Street," begins Monday. McCaskill says the meetings will give her a chance to answer questions from families and businesses about efforts to create jobs.
 
The Missouri Democrat says she has worked with Republican colleagues to write the Federal Permitting Improvement Act, designed to cut through federal red tape and expedite infrastructure projects.
 
McCaskill also says she has worked with a group of senators to introduce two proposals to provide billions of dollars in loans and loan guarantees for infrastructure projects without using federal tax dollars.
McCaskill's office said Thursday a schedule of the meetings was pending.
