Edwardsville parents vote to make up snow days in March

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 15:34 Published in Local News

Students in an Edwardsville School District will be in classrooms on two holidays in March.

 

Parents in District 7 voted to make up snow days on Casimir Pulaksi day, on March 3rd, and a Teacher Institute Day on March 21st.

 

The district considered canceling holidays or spring break, but parents voted for the two days in March.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have endorsed the creation of a government database to track people's prescription drug purchases.
 
Lawmakers for years have debated the idea, and Missouri now is the only state without legislation to create the database.
 
Sponsoring House member Kevin Engler says setting up a database can help prevent overdose deaths. One opponent voiced concerns about the potential for data breaches and government overreach.
 
Under the proposal, pharmacies would submit the identity of patients receiving medicine as well as the drug's quantity, the date and other details. Data could be given to doctors and law officers who have subpoenas.
 
House members endorsed the legislation by voice vote Tuesday. It needs a second affirmative vote before moving to the state Senate.
 

Supporters of minimum wage hike rally in Jefferson City

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 13:14 Published in Local News

Supporters of an increase to the minimum wage are rallying in Jefferson City today.

 

They plan to testify for the Small Business, Insurance, and Industry committee to support a bill that raises Missouri's minimum wage to $10 an hour.

 

Research from the Economic Policy Institute says that a family of four needs to earn nearly $65,000 a year to support a modest living. A full-time minimum wage worker makes less than $16,000 a year now.
