JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers are considering whether to permanently block a proposal that could allow more ethanol to be blended into gasoline.
   The Senate rules committee held a hearing Thursday on a resolution that would prevent stations from selling fuel containing 15 percent ethanol.
 
   The state Agriculture Department proposed the rule last year allowing E15 gas to be sold. But a legislative panel delayed the proposal in October, citing a 2006 state law that requires a 10 percent ethanol blend. The department says it has legal authority to allow higher concentrations of ethanol.
   The House and Senate would likely need to pass the resolution by early March to permanently halt the department's proposal. That would require Gov. Jay Nixon's approval, but lawmakers have the ability to override a veto.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri Senate panel has endorsed an income tax cut for businesses and individuals.
 
The legislation backed Thursday by the Senate Ways and Means Committee would gradually reduce Missouri's top individual income tax rate from 6 percent to 5 percent over a decade. It also would phase in a 50 percent deduction over five years for business income reported on individual income tax returns.
 
The incremental tax cuts would take effect only as long as Missouri's net general revenues rose by at least $100 million over the high mark from the previous three years.
 
The legislation also grants an additional $1,000 tax deduction to people with incomes below $20,000.
 
The committee's approval of the legislation means it could be one of the first measures debated this year in the Senate.

The FBI is asking for help in identifying a man whose skeletal remains were found by a hunter in a wooded area northwest of Sauget in December of 2012.  
The federal agency has created a clay sculpture to help assist with identification.  
A release from the Sauget Police Department says that five Russian coins in a pair of blue sweatpants were found along with the bones.  
The remains were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification.  Testing revealed that the skeleton belongs to a 30 to 50 year old white male, between 5-feet 6 and 6-feet-1 inches tall. If you have any information about this case you are urged to call the Sauget Police department at 618-337-526.
