New Business Creation Growing in Missouri

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri secretary of state's office says more businesses sought to organize in March than during the same month over the past decade.
 
The state on Wednesday reported about 4,500 business creation filings this March. That's up about 300 from March 2013 and is also higher than in any other March over the past 10 years.
 
The number of newly created businesses generally has been growing in Missouri. They have risen each year since 2010 after declining in each of the three prior years.

 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is urging federal regulators to require that publicly traded companies report any political spending to their shareholders.
 
Kander, a Democrat, says investors want to know how money has been spent for political purposes by the companies in which they invest.
 
Kander's office says he wrote to the Securities and Exchange Commission to support a rulemaking petition submitted in 2011 by several law professors.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander has assembled a panel of county clerks and other officials to help shape a policy allowing for early voting.

Missouri now lets voters cast absentee ballots only if they swear they cannot go to the polls on Election Day or meet other, limited criteria. But the state has no general provision for early voting, which Kander says could help ease long lines at the polls.

Kander's appointed commission will meet throughout February to study the merits of early voting and evaluate what he says would be the efficient, fair and secure way to allow the practice.

Besides county clerks, the panel also includes former state lawmakers, the mayor of Joplin, a county elections director and private citizens.
