JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A state Senate committee has advanced legislation that could raise Missouri's minimum wage to $10 an hour.
Tuesday's vote by a Senate business committee means the proposed increase could be brought up later for debate by the full Senate. But there is no guarantee that will occur, because the measure has been opposed by many Republicans who control the Legislature.
The bill by Democratic Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, of St. Louis, would raise Missouri's minimum wage to $10 an hour in 2015 and continue to adjust it annually for inflation.
The state's minimum wage currently stands at $7.50 an hour - 25 cents more than the federal minimum wage. Missouri's minimum wage already is adjusted annually for inflation, as a result of a 2006 law approved by voters.
The minimum wage bill is SB531.

   WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County police say a man and his son were found dead in a state park near St. Louis.
The bodies of 57-year-old Douglas Potter and his 20-year-old son Joseph were found Tuesday near a hiking trail in Babler State Park in Wildwood.
Spokesman Brian Schellman says police believe Douglas Potter shot his son and then killed himself.
A couple walking in the park found the bodies and a vehicle that belonged to one of the men was discovered nearby.
Authorities evacuated the park except for a group of students who were on a camping trip in an area away from where the bodies were found.

Some St. Louis musicians want the city to back away from a pair of planned summer music festivals they fear could damage more home-grown events. 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports more than 900 people have signed a petition opposing a Board of Alderman bill giving Summer Rocks LLC exclusive access to the downtown Soldiers Memorial area for 20 years.  
 
Summer Rocks is owned by the Los Angeles talent agency ICM Partners, which books the Lollapalooza music festivals. The St. Louis events would begin in 2015 and potentially rival Lollapalooza in both attendance and number of big-time performers.
Local blues musician Jeremy Segel-Moss will present the petition opposing the proposal to city leaders today.
