Governor Rick Perry returns to Missouri for CPAC

Friday, 27 September 2013 15:24 Published in Local News

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - Republican Gov. Rick Perry of Texas returned to Missouri Friday to help unveil a new nonprofit group focusing on job creation through low-tax state policies.

His St. Charles visit to promote Americans for Economic Freedom came after an August stop in which he criticized Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon for vetoing tax-cut legislation. State lawmakers subsequently failed in a veto override attempt.

On Saturday, Perry will speak to GOP conservatives at a regional meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Perry also met privately in August with the Missouri Chamber of Commerce in Clayton and held a political rally in Chesterfield. And he urged Missouri businesses to relocate to Texas in a series of radio ads.

Perry is considering whether to run for president in 2016 after an unsuccessful 2012 effort.

 

UMWA plan to appeal dismissal of lawsuit

Friday, 27 September 2013 14:14 Published in Local News

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to preserve benefits for bankrupt Patriot Coal Corp.'s active and retired miners.

U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin on Friday sided with Peabody Energy and Arch Coal.

The United Mine Workers of America filed the lawsuit last year, saying the companies set up spinoff companies to rid themselves of their benefits obligations. The lawsuit argued they were still responsible for those benefits under the federal Employee Retirement and Income Securities Act.

But Goodwin ruled the law doesn't protect a pension fund's financial stability.

UMW President Cecil Roberts tells The Charleston Gazette the union plans to appeal.

Peabody spun off Patriot in 2007, and Patriot later acquired mines that Arch spun off into Magnum Coal. Patriot declared bankruptcy last year.
