JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Republican state senator says he expects to be appointed by the governor to Missouri's utility regulatory commission.
 
Sen. Scott Rupp, of Wentzville, said Tuesday that he has met with Gov. Jay Nixon and his staff about the position on the Public Service Commission.
 
Rupp tells The Associated Press that the governor plans to appoint him to the PSC on March 14.
 
A Nixon spokesman said he could not immediately confirm Rupp's potential appointment.
 
All nominees to the PSC must be approved by the Senate. Republican senators have been reluctant to approve Nixon's appointment of former aide Daniel Hall to the PSC without assurances that the Democratic governor also will name a Republican to the panel.
 
Hall's appointment is now scheduled to receive a Senate committee hearing Wednesday.

   People in Illinois who want to use medical marijuana would have to be fingerprinted, undergo a background check and pay $150 a year for a special photo ID.  That's if the state health department's proposed regulations are adopted.  
   The nearly 50 page Draft DPH Medical Cannabis regulation document is now online, opening an informal public comment period.  
   Medical marijuana supporters are reacting to the proposed regulations unveiled Tuesday by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
   Chris Lindsey of the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington says the annual fee is burdensome for patients. He says states like Michigan charge less and generate big surpluses.
   But he applauds Illinois for proposing an advisory board to review petitions for adding medical conditions to the list approved for marijuana.
   Jim Champion is an Illinois veteran with multiple sclerosis. He says he's concerned that patients and caregivers can't get medical marijuana cards if they have firearm owners ID cards because of state and federal laws.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court will decide whether making nonunion home health care workers in Illinois pay "fair-share" union fees is an unconstitutional violation of their First Amendment rights. The case could have major implications for public service unions.
 
The justices heard arguments Tuesday from lawyers for Illinois homecare personal assistants who don't want to be affiliated with a union. In Illinois, nonunion home health care workers have to pay "fair share fees" to compensate the union for its work for all of the workers. Those workers sued, saying that the fees violate the First Amendment by compelling them to associate with the union.
 
Lower courts have thrown out the lawsuit. If the high court agrees it would make it more difficult for unions to collect money for their work.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A spring golf tournament is being planned to help the family of a Smithville man who died after an altercation at Arrowhead Stadium.
 
The Kyle Van Winkle golf classic will be held May 5 at Meadowbrook Golf & Country Club in Prairie Village, Kan.
 
The 30-year-old Van Winkle died Dec. 1 after he was beaten in an Arrowhead parking lot during a Chiefs game. Court documents say Van Winkle was injured after he was found in a stranger's vehicle. Van Winkle apparently got into a vehicle that looked like the one he rode to the game in.
 
He left behind a widow and 7-week-old son.
 
His death was ruled a homicide but no one has been charged.
