ESL using cameras to catch speeders

Tuesday, 25 March 2014 09:30 Published in Around Town
   East St. Louis Police are the latest in the metro area to use cameras to try to catch dangerous drivers.   Monday East St. Louis Police Chief Michael Floore announced his department is using two new radar-equipped cameras to catch speeders.  
   Like other traffic cameras in the area, tickets are issued to the car's owner based on the license plate. But unlike other cameras, these are hand-held by officers stationed on surface streets and interstates.  
   Chief Floore tells Fox 2 News using the cameras isn't about generating revenue. "This is pure for safety and safety only," Floore said.  "This is merely to get drivers to slow down in our venue."
   East St. Louis Police Captain Bobby Cole tells Fox 2 News the cameras are making the streets safer for everyone.  "It takes the officer out of harm's way also," Cole said.  "If we’re up on a highway or in a safety zone or a school zone, the officer doesn't have to get out in traffic now."
   The tickets carry fines of 100-to-280 dollars.  But no points are assessed, and the vehicle owner can ask police to transfer the ticket to the actual driver at the time the car was speeding.

MO GOP senators vow to block Medicaid expansion

Tuesday, 25 March 2014 03:46 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - In case there was any doubt, several Republican state senators are making it clear that there will be no expansion of Medicaid eligibility this year in Missouri.
   Five GOP senators took to the Senate floor Monday as the Legislature returned from spring break to say they will block any attempt to expand Medicaid eligibility during the session that ends in mid-May.
   Their strong pronouncement came a day before a House committee is to hear testimony on a proposal that would expand Medicaid coverage to thousands of lower-income adults, partly by subsidizing their enrollment in private health insurance policies. The House legislation would link the Medicaid expansion to a broader overhaul of the program.
   States that expand Medicaid eligibility can get extra federal money under President Barack Obama's health law.
