SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Republican candidate for Illinois governor Bill Brady says he was "insensitive" when he said out-of-work people don't want jobs because they enjoy collecting unemployment benefits.
 
The state senator from Bloomington told The (Springfield) State Journal-Register Wednesday he "didn't take into consideration there are a number of people out there looking for jobs who don't want to be on unemployment."
 
During a GOP gubernatorial debate Tuesday in Naperville Brady said unemployment benefits should be cut. He said Illinois provides out-of-work residents larger and longer benefits than most states.
 
He also said business leaders tell him they have trouble rehiring former workers because they are enjoying collecting unemployment insurance.
 
Brady is seeking the GOP nomination against state Sen. Kirk Dillard, businessman Bruce Rauner, and Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Women with dense breast tissue would have to be notified about the need for additional screenings at their mammograms under legislation passed by the Missouri Senate.
 
The measure was passed 32-0 by senators on Thursday and it now heads to the House. Sponsoring Republican Sen. Dan Brown, of Rolla, says mammograms might not pick up cancer if a woman has dense tissue. He says his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer only after a biopsy was taken after several mammograms turned up negative.
 
Starting in 2015, the bill would require facilities that perform mammograms to notify patients that if they have dense breast tissue that additional tests might be required to detect cancer.
 
Legislature: Mammograms is SB 639

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is warning Missourians to be on the lookout for possible price gouging by towing companies.

 

Koster says it is normal to see slightly higher rates during winter storms as the companies try to cover overtime hours. What is not acceptable is when the tow service adds on un-disclosed fees at the end of service. Koster encourages anyone needing a tow to ask for a full estimate before having your vehicle hooked up to the truck.

 

Drivers should also look for tow trucks that have a license from MoDOT--the license should be easily visible on the truck.
