JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee has endorsed a measure, known as "right to work," that would bar labor contracts from requiring that all employees pay union fees.
The House Workforce Development and Workforce Safety Committee also voted on Monday to advance legislation that would change how unions can collect fees.
It would require unions to get annual written authorization to collect fees that are automatically deducted from a worker's paycheck.
If they clear the Legislature, both measures would go on a statewide ballot. The Republican sponsors say sending the bills to voters would get around a likely veto by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
"Right to work" is a top priority of Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka.

   Those who wanted to see two former Cardinals sluggers duke it out in court may be disappointed.  Albert Pujols had sued Jack Clark over allegations of performance-enhancing drug use.  
   Monday evening, Clark publicly retracted his comments and apologized.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Pujols followed shortly by accepting Clark's apology and plans to drop the lawsuit.
   “I would like to address Albert Pujols’ pending defamation lawsuit and reconfirm that I have no knowledge whatsoever that Mr. Pujols has ever used illegal or banned PEDs,” Clark said in a statement he released and that was provided to the Post-Dispatch.  “I publicly retract my statements that Albert Pujols used such substances. During a heated discussion on air, I misspoke, and for that I sincerely apologize.”
   The Post-Dispatch published the following statement by Pujols in response to Clark’s apology: “I have accepted Jack Clark’s retraction and apology to resolve my lawsuit against him and clear my name.”
    Both Jack Clark and radio co-host Kevin Slaten were fired by station WGNU after Clark called Pujols "a juicer" on-air and claimed that a former Pujols trainer had told him the trainer had injected Pujols with PEDs.
