JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has developed a proposal to help more Missourians pursue careers in mental health care.
 
The governor planned to announce details Wednesday during stops in Columbia and Kansas City. His office said the announcement would involve a proposal for funding in the next state budget.
