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.
