Missouri targets developmentally disabled wait list

Sunday, 09 February 2014 08:55 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hundreds of people who have developmental disabilities could begin receiving publicly funded services as Missouri officials tackle a waiting list for in-home services that now stands at almost 1,400 people.

Governor Jay Nixon is proposing nearly $24 million for in-home services for people who qualify for Medicaid that officials say would cover 970 people. The Department of Mental Health says about 500 people would remain on the waiting list that several years ago stood at more than 2,000 people.

Other states also have waiting lists for the services. The waits can lead to financial challenges and psychological strain.

Paying red-light camera fines in Arnold optional

Sunday, 09 February 2014 08:53 Published in Local News

ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri community that was the first in the state to install red light cameras says it will keep issuing tickets to red-light runners caught on camera, but they don't have to pay the fine if they don't want to.

TheSt. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Arnold City Council voted unanimously Thursday to not pursue tickets from the cameras. The decision comes after the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District ruled in December that Arnold's red-light camera law is unconstitutional.

City Administrator Bryan Richison says those who get tickets and come to court will get their ticket dismissed, while no warrants will be issued for those who just ignore the tickets. Those who pay the fines, however, won't get their money back.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has joined his Missouri counterpart and others at a ribbon-cutting for a new bridge over the Mississippi at St. Louis.

The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge is opening to traffic Sunday.

The two states spent years fighting over how to pay for the $700 million span, then argued over what to name the bridge.

But on Saturday officials from both states came together to celebrate its completion.

Quinn said the first new link to be built between downtown St. Louis and southwestern Illinois in more than four decades will be a "catalyst for business development and job creation."

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx called it "a road to opportunity."

It's designed to relieve I-70 traffic on the chronically crammed 50-year-old Poplar Street Bridge.
