JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's Republican lawmakers are advancing a pair of tax cut proposals for potential debate in the coming weeks.
A House committee on Thursday endorsed legislation already passed by the Senate that would cut income tax rates for individuals and some business owners. That proposal is projected by legislative researchers to reduce state revenues by $620 million annually when fully phased in.
Also Thursday, a Senate committee changed and endorsed a tax cut bill that previously passed the House. As revised, that plan would cut income taxes only for businesses, not individuals. Its cost is estimated at about half the amount as the other bill.
Committee approval of the bills means they could soon be considered by the full House and Senate.

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn and his GOP rival Bruce Rauner are scheduled to appear together for the first time in the 2014 campaign for Illinois governor. Quinn and Rauner are to discuss education policy during a Friday meeting of the Illinois Education Association in Chicago.
Quinn is a Chicago Democrat seeking his second full term as governor.
Rauner is a Winnetka businessman making his first bid for public office. He defeated three other candidates to win the GOP nomination last month.
Education already has been a major campaign issue.
Quinn wants to make Illinois' temporary income tax hike permanent to invest more money in schools.
Rauner and his wife have donated millions for charter schools and teacher merit pay. He's ripped Quinn for cutting school funding in recent years.

ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - University of Missouri curators will learn the results of an outside law firm's investigation into the school's handling of a former swimmer's 2011 suicide at a Friday meeting in Rolla.
The university system hired the Dowd Bennett Law Firm to review the Columbia campus' actions in connection with the death of 20-year-old Sasha Menu Courey.
University officials say they didn't learn about her alleged freshman-year rape by several football players until she committed suicide 16 months later. Menu Courey's family has created a charitable foundation in her name to help raise money for greater awareness of borderline personality disorder.
The school says neither Menu Courey nor her parents sought a police investigation and didn't respond to a later request for more information. The case has since been referred to Columbia police.
