Mo. AG says state may have to use gas chamber

Wednesday, 03 July 2013 08:05 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Attorney General Chris Koster says Missouri may have to resort to using the gas chamber to carry out death sentences as an "unintended consequence" of the state Supreme Court's refusal to set execution dates.

 

   Executions have been on hold in Missouri since the state Supreme Court has declined to set execution dates. The court says execution dates would be "premature" until a federal legal challenge is resolved regarding the use of the drug propofol as Missouri's new execution method.

 

   Koster told The Kansas City Star on Tuesday (http://bit.ly/13lennE ) that if the court doesn't change course, the legislature may have to fund alternative execution methods. The only execution methods authorized in Missouri are lethal gas and injection.

 

   Koster says the gas chamber may be the last option to enforce state law.

Mo. House Medicaid group to include 50 members

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 11:07 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones has appointed a 50-member task force to study potential changes to the Medicaid health care program for the poor.

 

   The panel is made up of 14 lawmakers and 36 private citizens, including many who are doctors, hospital officials or otherwise involved in health care. But the panel also includes one person identified as a Medicaid recipient.

 

   The large task force is to gather public testimony and research about Medicaid changes. A separate committee of 21 lawmakers then will take that information and craft legislation for the 2014 session.

 

   Missouri's Republican-led Legislature rejected a plan earlier this year by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon to expand Medicaid eligibility in accordance with the new federal health care law.

 

Quinn changes Illinois concealed carry legislation

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 11:03 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is changing legislation allowing the carrying of concealed guns to cap the number of firearms and ammunition that can be carried and to ban guns from any establishment where alcohol is served.

   The Democratic governor is using his amendatory veto power to tweak the legislation sent to him after months of debate and negotiation over the measure.

   A federal appeals court ruled in December that it was unconstitutional for Illinois to ban the public possession of concealed firearms and gave it until July 9 to comply.

 

   Quinn says he never agreed with the court's ruling and the bill lawmakers sent him is flawed and needs changes.

 

   The legislation permits qualified gun owners who pass background checks and undergo 16 hours of training to get permits for $150.
