JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has vetoed a pair of bills that he says would have imposed new mandates on governments to solve problems that don't exist.

   One of the bills vetoed Monday would have banned public entities from restricting celebrations or discussions of federal holidays. Though it could have protected religious-oriented holidays such as Christmas, Nixon said it also could have hampered efforts to enforce fireworks ordinances around Independence Day.

   The other vetoed bill would have forbidden governments from enacting policies traceable to Agenda 21 -a nonbinding resolution adopted in 1992 by the United Nations that encouraged sustainable development.

   The Democratic governor said both bills passed by the Republican-led Legislature attempt to fight imaginary problems but could have caused real headaches for officials in local communities.

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster wants the state Supreme Court to set execution dates for two inmates before the state's supply of an execution drug expires.

Koster has renewed a request for execution dates to be set for Allen Nicklasson and Joseph Franklin. The state's highest court refused to do so last August, citing a legal challenge to the state's newly planned use of the drug propofol as its execution method.

The attorney general's office said Monday that the Department of Corrections has a limited supply of propofol and much of it will expire next spring.

Nicklasson was convicted for the 1994 killing of a businessman traveling on Interstate 70 in Callaway County.

Franklin was convicted of killing a man outside a suburban St. Louis synagogue in 1977.

 

BRIDGETON, Mo. (AP) - Residents who live near a suburban St. Louis landfill where an underground fire is burning are pushing for the immediate removal of nuclear waste that sits near the fire.

Several residents spoke out Monday at a rally near the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton.

West Lake actually includes two landfills. Underground smoldering at the Bridgeton Landfill is creating an odor so strong that Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed suit.

The smoldering is about 1,200 feet from a second landfill that includes Cold War era atomic waste.

Environmental Protection Agency spokesman Chris Whitley says the nuclear waste is not endangered by the underground fire, and plans are in place if it gets closer. Whitley says the EPA is still weighing how best to remediate the nuclear site.
