KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Last-minute enrollment efforts across Missouri are expected to boost the number of consumers gaining coverage through the new federal health insurance law, but organizers say the deadline push won't hit anticipated enrollment targets.
 
The Cover Missouri Coalition expects statewide enrollment through the Affordable Care Act's online health insurance marketplace to top 100,000 by Monday's deadline. The federal government projected Missouri's six-month enrollment at 118,000.
 
Missouri is one of 36 states where the online marketplace is being run by the federal government after state lawmakers balked at participation in President Obama's signature effort.
 
Deadline-day activities in Kansas City and St. Louis resembled the final frantic hours of a political campaign, with organized community events to boost enrollment as well as aggressive social media efforts and door-to-door messages.

CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man is the first in Illinois to have his permit to carry a concealed weapon revoked.
 
The Chicago Sun-Times reports 54-year-old William P. O'Connell was arrested March 23 on suspicion of a misdemeanor charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
 
O'Connell was allegedly involved in a dispute over rent money with a 52-year-old man. Police say O'Connell pointed a handgun and threatened to shoot the man.
 
The Illinois State Police have revoked O'Connell's concealed-carry permit. The law prohibits carrying by anyone involved in an action that could lead to disqualification.
 
State police spokeswoman Monique Bond confirmed Monday that O'Connell is the first revocation subject.
 
O'Connell did not immediately respond to a message left at his home.
 
The Illinois concealed carry law took effect Jan. 1.

CHICAGO (AP) - A judge has dismissed civil action by a Chicago law firm and scolded attorneys for what she describes as an improper filing on behalf of a relative of a passenger on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
 
In a step toward a full-fledged lawsuit, Ribbeck Law Chartered asked a Cook County court last week to order Malaysia Airlines and Chicago-based Boeing Co. to turn over documents related to the plane's disappearance.
 
Judge Kathy Flanagan dismissed the request in a ruling Friday, saying it didn't conform to Illinois law.
 
She has tossed similar filings by Ribbeck in two other airplane crashes and warned the firm it could face "sanctions" if it happens again.
 
Ribbeck spokesman Mervin Mateo says the firm still planned a full lawsuit if and when plane wreckage is found.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Missouri law enforcement officials have changed their tactics in the war on meth. New figures show that the changes are having an effect.

 

In 2013, for the first time in a decade, Missouri did not lead the nation in meth busts. The Show-Me state dropped to number 3 behind Indiana and Tennessee. The Post-Dispatch reports that changes in enforcement approaches and new laws may have caused the statistics to drop. The Jefferson County drug task force says they focused on making larger-scale labs.

 

Earlier in March, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported a seizure of 95 meth labs just outside Mountain Grove, Missouri. The drug raid was believed to be a record for a single seizure in Missouri.
