Missouri Senate passes mammogram notice legislation

Thursday, 06 February 2014 15:39 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Women with dense breast tissue would have to be notified about the need for additional screenings at their mammograms under legislation passed by the Missouri Senate.
 
The measure was passed 32-0 by senators on Thursday and it now heads to the House. Sponsoring Republican Sen. Dan Brown, of Rolla, says mammograms might not pick up cancer if a woman has dense tissue. He says his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer only after a biopsy was taken after several mammograms turned up negative.
 
Starting in 2015, the bill would require facilities that perform mammograms to notify patients that if they have dense breast tissue that additional tests might be required to detect cancer.
 
Legislature: Mammograms is SB 639

AG Koster warns Missourians of tow company price gouging

Thursday, 06 February 2014 13:45 Published in Local News

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is warning Missourians to be on the lookout for possible price gouging by towing companies.

 

Koster says it is normal to see slightly higher rates during winter storms as the companies try to cover overtime hours. What is not acceptable is when the tow service adds on un-disclosed fees at the end of service. Koster encourages anyone needing a tow to ask for a full estimate before having your vehicle hooked up to the truck.

 

Drivers should also look for tow trucks that have a license from MoDOT--the license should be easily visible on the truck.
