JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Numerous messages are urging Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to sign legislation that would require doctors be in the room for the initial dose of a drug used in medical abortions.

The Republican-led Legislature approved the legislation. Nixon, a Democrat, has about a month to sign or veto the bill. Otherwise, it will take effect without his signature.

Many people are seeking to influence Nixon's decision. Supporters of the legislation say it would prevent "telemedicine" abortions and is needed to protect women's health and safety.

Opponents say the process is safe, and the legislation seems to be more of an attempt to restrict availability of abortion services.

Abortion drug bill is HB400.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon is leading a Missouri delegation to the Paris Air Show.

The delegation left Friday, and will head from Paris to the United Kingdom, then Belgium and return to Missouri on June 22nd.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 14 Missouri companies and institutions are in the Missouri delegation to show, which is a massive aerospace trade exhibition.

Most of the companies joining Nixon on the trip are in the aviation business, including Boeing Co. and Clayton-based Sabreliner. They're looking for new customers overseas.

State officials say no taxpayer funds are being used on the trip. Delegation members are paying their own way. Travel costs for Nixon and his wife are covered by the Hawthorne Foundation, an economic development nonprofit group funded by private donations.

Iranians celebrate presidential election

Saturday, 15 June 2013 21:23 Published in National News

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — There are wild celebrations on the streets of Tehran after reformist-backed Hasan Rowhani capped a stunning surge to claim Iran's presidency on Saturday.

His election throws open the political order after relentless crackdowns by hard-liners to consolidate and safeguard their grip on power.

Tens of thousands of jubilant supporters have been chanting "Long live Rowhani."

Security officials have made no attempt to rein in crowds -- joyous and even a bit bewildered by the scope of his victory with more than three times the votes of his nearest rival.

In his first statement after the results were announced, Rowhani said that "a new opportunity has been created ... for those who truly respect democracy, interaction and free dialogue."

But in Iran, even landslides at the ballot box do not equate to policymaking influence.

All key decisions remain solidly in the hands of the ruling clerics and their powerful protectors, the Revolutionary Guard. But Rowhani's victory does reopen space for moderate and liberal voices.
