Missouri joins other states in California egg lawsuit

Thursday, 06 March 2014 14:41 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Five other states are joining Missouri's fight against a California egg law regulating the living conditions of chickens.
 
   Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster last month filed a lawsuit against the measure set to take effect next year. It bars the sale of eggs produced by hens kept in cages that don't meet California's size and space requirements.
 
   The state attorneys general contend the California law violates the interstate commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution by effectively imposing new requirements on out-of-state farmers.
 
   The five other states joining Thursday are Nebraska, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Iowa. Those states and Missouri produce 20 billion eggs per year, and 10 percent of that production is sold in California.
 
   The Humane Society of the United States criticized the lawsuit, saying it wastes taxpayer dollars.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers gave final approval to legislation that could lower treatment cost for some cancer patients.
 
The bill would prohibit insurance companies from charging patients more than $75 for oral cancer drugs rather than traditional intravenous treatments. Sponsoring Rep. Sheila Solon, of Blue Springs, says oral drugs often carry fewer side effects for cancer patients.
 
The House voted 147-6 on Thursday to send the bill to Gov. Jay Nixon's desk. The Senate passed the measure last month.
 
Patients are often charged much more for oral chemotherapy because it is handled as a pharmacy benefit. Traditional intravenous treatments often cost only the standard co-payment for an office visit.
 
House Speaker Tim Jones says the bill would be among the most significant pieces of legislation passed by the Legislature this year.

Officials: Smelly drinking water poses no health risk

Thursday, 06 March 2014 13:07 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis officials say the Missouri River is to blame for a foul smell in drinking water.
 
Water commissioner Curt Skouby told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the odor and taste should be gone within days. Meanwhile, he says the water is safe to drink.
 
Officials say upriver snowmelt and changing temperatures, along with naturally occurring material in the river, is causing the odor.
 
Kansas City, Mo., has also had complaints about its water in recent days.
