Mo. House ups quest to appeal birth control ruling

Thursday, 28 March 2013 23:54 Published in Local News

 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones is increasing his push to get the attorney general to appeal a ruling against a new law creating a moral exemption from mandatory insurance coverage of birth control.

   Jones filed a resolution Thursday in the House that, if passed by both chambers, would officially ask Attorney General Chris Koster to appeal the decision. Jones previously sent a letter to Koster requesting an appeal.

   The Republican-led Legislature overrode a veto by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon last year to enact a law requiring insurers to issue policies without contraception coverage if individuals or employers say it violates their "moral, ethical or religious beliefs."

   A federal judge struck down the law earlier this month, ruling that it conflicted with a provision of President Barack Obama's health care law.

4-yr-old girl shot during drive-by

Thursday, 28 March 2013 23:51 Published in Local News

A 4-year-old girl is the unintended target of a drive-by shooting last night. Police say the girl was walking with her mother up the front steps of a house on Louisiana Avenue near Itaska Street in Dutchtown when a dark-colored car drove by and fired shots. The little girl was struck in the shoulder. On the way to the hospital, the mother flagged down an officer who drove the girl the rest of the way.  Witnesses are cooperating with police, who believe the shooter may have been aiming for his girlfriend who was standing nearby. 

Mo. House panel mulls privacy for lottery winners

Thursday, 28 March 2013 09:31 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee is considering bill that would allow lottery winners to remain anonymous after claiming their prizes.

 

   Sponsoring Rep. Rochelle Walton Gray, of Black Jack, told the House Local Government Committee Thursday that winning the lottery can subject a person to hardship. Her measure would prevent the Missouri Lottery from releasing the names or addresses of prize winners without their written consent.

   Officials from the Missouri Lottery say revealing a winner's identity provides legitimacy to games and helps sell more tickets. The names of lottery winners are also subject to Missouri's Sunshine Law, making identity information available to open records request.
