JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is raising concerns about legislation attempting to nullify some federal gun-control laws.

Koster sent a letter Tuesday to lawmakers warning that the bill contains "flawed public policy."

The Republican-led Legislature is to meet Sept. 11 to consider overriding Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of the legislation.

Koster, a Democrat, says a federal judge likely would strike down provisions attempting to nullify some federal gun laws and making it a crime for federal agents to enforce them. But Koster says other parts of the measure that could be upheld are troubling.

He says the bill could restrict local police from working cooperatively with federal agents and could allow criminals to sue police who refer gun violations to federal prosecutors.

St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish is now considering an affiliation with the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. The St. Louis Polish parish broke away from the Roman Catholic Church nearly a decade ago during a dispute over who controlled the parish's finances. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Bishop George Wayne Smith has sent a letter to Episcopal clergy about the proposal. The negotiations come seven months after the Archdiocese of St. Louis dropped its appeal of a judge's ruling that handed over control of St. Stanislaus to its own lay board. The Archdiocese had removed the parish in 2005 when it was at odds over a 19th century agreement that allowed St. Stanislaus to govern its own finances.
