JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri women would have to wait 72 hours after seeing a doctor before an abortion could be performed under legislation being considered by the House Health Care Policy Committee.
   The panel heard testimony from supporters Wednesday on how the bill would give women more time to think before terminating a pregnancy. Opponents argued the measure would just be a logistical delay designed to push women further into pregnancy before having an abortion, which can increase risk.
   Under current law, a woman must wait 24 hours after seeing a doctor before an abortion can take place. Only South Dakota and Utah require 72-hour waiting periods.
   The committee took no action on the legislation Wednesday.

 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers could have to cut about $370 million from Gov. Jay Nixon's budget if they don't want to go along with his financial assumptions.
   Republican legislative leaders were still fuming Wednesday about Nixon's budget proposal, a day after he outlined it as part of his State of the State address.
   During a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, Chairman Kurt Schaefer (SHAY'-fer) told the Democratic governor's budget director that Nixon's plan "is an absolute political fiction."
 
   Nixon's budget assumes stronger revenue growth than Republican lawmakers believe will occur. It also assumes lawmakers will generate new revenues or cost-savings by expanding Medicaid eligibility, offering amnesty to overdue taxpayers and tweaking various revenue-collection laws.
   If lawmakers reject those things, they would have to trim about $370 million of spending from Nixon's budget.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is asking the state's Republican-led Legislature to bar discrimination based on sexual orientation.
 
But the measure's chances of passing are unclear. Some Republicans expressed caution Wednesday and criticized Nixon for championing the proposal while ignoring other policy initiatives.
 
Current state law prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex and disability.
 
Many Democrats applauded Nixon for including the proposal among his priorities outlined in the State of the State address Tuesday night.
 
Legislation to bar discrimination based on sexual orientation passed the Senate on the last day of session last year, but never received a House vote.
 
At least one House member - Anne Zerr, of St. Charles - said she was glad Nixon pushed for the measure in his speech.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is proposing $198 million in bonds for a new maximum and intermediate security facility at the Fulton State Hospital.
The hospital has Missouri's only maximum security psychiatric facility, and patients include those committed by the courts for treatment. It also is the statewide treatment facility for people who have been found guilty or unable to stand trial because of mental disease.
Nixon is proposing a $14 million supplement to the current year's budget for the hospital and another $14 million in his recommendations for the 2015 budget that takes effect July 1.
The governor's budget director says bonds would be issued if lawmakers approve the supplemental budget request. One option would be issuing the bonds through the Missouri Development Finance Board.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Senate panel has halted one of Gov. Jay Nixon's appointments to the Missouri Human Rights Commission.
The Democratic governor appointed former Democratic state House member Sara Lampe, of Springfield, to the board. The Republican-led committee stopped the nomination Wednesday because of concerns that there would be too many Democrats on the commission.
Republican senators said they would not proceed with Lampe's confirmation until Nixon fills more commission slots with Republican nominees.
The Human Rights Commission investigates complaints of discrimination in employment, housing and places that accommodate the public. It currently has two Republicans, three Democrats, and five vacancies. Nixon has one other Democratic nomination to the commission pending before the Senate.
Lampe served in the Legislature from 2005 to 2013 and is a former teacher and school administrator.

 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's chief justice is encouraging lawmakers to overhaul state laws detailing various crimes and punishments.
Chief Justice Mary Russell highlighted the need to revise Missouri's criminal code in her annual State of the Judiciary speech Wednesday to a joint session of the House and Senate.
Lawmakers have been working for the past couple of years on a potential criminal code revision. Russell said the last comprehensive overhaul occurred about 35 years ago. Since then, lawmakers have continued to add new crimes and penalties, some of which aren't enforced often.
Russell said there were 232 offenses that were charged only once in the entire state last year and an additional 130 offenses that were charged just twice. She also questioned the fairness of some penalties.
