ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon chose a monument to the space race manufacturing boon as a backdrop to sign into law a $1.7 billion tax incentive package to lure aerospace giant Boeing to the state.

The governor endorsed the tax breaks for production of the company's 777X jetliner Tuesday morning at a bill signing ceremony at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium in St. Louis' Forest Park.

More than 100 civic and business leaders joined Nixon, hours before Boeing's self-imposed deadline for offers from eager local and state governments across the country. The presumed manufacturing site is on the edge of Lambert St. Louis International Airport.

The tax credits are worth up to $150 million annually over 23 years if Boeing meets its target of 8,000 new jobs.

Disciplinary action expected for former St. Louis mayor

Tuesday, 10 December 2013 12:35 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A state panel says that former St. Louis mayor Freeman Bosley can expect to face disciplinary action from the Missouri Supreme Court for mishandling clients' legal fees.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Bosley acknowledged improper financial practices at his law firm during a Monday hearing of the court's Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel .

The state alleges Bosley combined his own money with clients' funds, used trust-account money to pay personal expenses and failed to keep accurate records. The state investigation shows Bosley may owe about $6,250 to third-party health care providers.

The disciplinary panel's punishment options include reprimand, probation, suspension and disbarment.

Bosley was St. Louis' first black mayor, elected in 1993. He lost a 1997 re-election bid and went into private law practice.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster's office has appealed the stay of execution for convicted killer Allen Nicklasson, calling the federal appeals court ruling "an abuse of discretion."

A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday granted a stay for Nicklasson, scheduled to be put to death at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for killing businessman Richard Drummond nearly two decades ago.

Late Monday, Koster's office asked for a hearing before the full 8th Circuit. By Tuesday morning, no decision had been made on that appeal.

After going nearly three years without an execution, Missouri had been preparing for its second in three weeks. The state executed racist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin on Nov. 20. It was the first execution in Missouri using a single drug, pentobarbital.
