JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri senator is proposing to curb governors' authority to make budget cuts affecting education.
The Missouri Constitution allows the governor to control the rate appropriations are spent and to reduce spending when state revenues are less than the estimate upon which the budget is based.
Republican Sen. Ryan Silvey, of Kansas City, has proposed a constitutional amendment that would exclude spending through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education from that budget-trimming authority. A constitutional amendment would require a statewide vote if it passes the Legislature.
Some funding for K-12 schools was included in Gov. Jay Nixon's spending freeze last year because of concerns the Legislature would override his veto of a tax cut. That funding has since been restored.

Kit Bond to lobby for Medicaid expansion in Missouri

Friday, 24 January 2014 10:35 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former U.S. Sen. Kit Bond has been hired by a state business association to lobby his fellow Republicans in the state Legislature in support of a Medicaid expansion.
Bond's lobbying firm is being paid by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Chamber President Dan Mehan says the group hopes to capitalize on Bond's reputation and political connections to persuade reluctant Republican lawmakers that Medicaid expansion is a good idea.
Missouri's Republican-led Legislature has repeatedly rejected calls to extend Medicaid eligibility to an estimated 300,000 additional lower-income adults.
The expansion has been backed by Gov. Jay Nixon and his fellow Democratic lawmakers.
States that expand Medicaid eligibility can receive enhanced federal payments under the terms of President Barack Obama's health care law.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The sale of "I'm Pet Friendly" license plates has raised more than $100,000 since 2009 for a pet spay and neuter program in Missouri.  
Through each specialty plate that is sold, $20 is donated to the program. The Missouri Department of Agriculture says that last year, the program provided $20,000 worth of grants for animal shelters, humane societies and non-profit rescue groups.
The money is used to spay and neuter pets before they are adopted or to help low-income owners who can't afford to fix their animals.
The department is accepting grant applications through the end of February. Last year's recipients include organizations located in Ava, Fenton, Cadet, Sedalia, Ray County, Richmond, Kansas City, Perryville and Rolla.
