Lawmakers recommend change to state's primary date

Tuesday, 25 February 2014 12:37 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House panel has endorsed legislation that would move the state's presidential primary to March 15.
 
The primary is currently scheduled for February but sponsoring Rep. Tony Dugger says keeping that date could cause Missouri to lose delegates at the 2016 national party conventions.
 
Dugger, a Hartville Republican, says moving the date would avoid a repeat of 2012, when the state held a non-binding presidential primary. Faced with losing delegates, state Republican officials decided that year to select convention representatives with a caucus system held after the election.
 
National party rules allow only certain states to hold contests before the March 15 date.
 
The House Elections Committee voted 10-0 on Tuesday to adopt the legislation. It now heads to the Rules Committee.

Former Senator Kit Bond supports Medicaid expansion

Tuesday, 25 February 2014 12:20 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former Republican Sen. Kit Bond is citing problems with the federal health care law as a reason to embrace one of its key provisions by expanding Medicaid coverage.
 
Bond was part of panel discussion Tuesday about Medicaid hosted by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The former longtime U.S. senator has been hired by the chamber to lobby Republican state lawmakers who have repeatedly defeated a Medicaid expansion.
 
He said Medicaid expansion would draw additional federal dollars, thus helping to offset federal funding cuts due to hit hospitals that treat uninsured patients.
 
Bond said Medicaid expansion can be paired with "reforms" that model the program on the private sector and require participants to pay more out of pocket.
 
Some Republican lawmakers have cited concerns about its long-term costs.

Missouri prepares for fourth execution in as many months

Tuesday, 25 February 2014 11:43 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri corrections officials say they will use a lethal drug provided by a new supplier in the state's fourth execution in four months.
 
Convicted killer Michael Taylor is scheduled to die at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday. Several court appeals have been filed seeking to spare his life, and Gov. Jay Nixon is weighing a clemency request.
 
Taylor's attorneys are questioning Missouri's use of the new, unnamed compounding pharmacy to provide the pentobarbital for his execution. They also allege that the state executes men before appeals are complete, and say Taylor's trial attorney was ineffective.
 
Taylor and Roderick Nunley were convicted of abducting 15-year-old Ann Harrison as she waited for a Kansas City school bus in 1989, then raping and killing her. Nunley is also on death row.
