Missouri senator expecting appointment to utility board

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 16:15 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Republican state senator says he expects to be appointed by the governor to Missouri's utility regulatory commission.
 
Sen. Scott Rupp, of Wentzville, said Tuesday that he has met with Gov. Jay Nixon and his staff about the position on the Public Service Commission.
 
Rupp tells The Associated Press that the governor plans to appoint him to the PSC on March 14.
 
A Nixon spokesman said he could not immediately confirm Rupp's potential appointment.
 
All nominees to the PSC must be approved by the Senate. Republican senators have been reluctant to approve Nixon's appointment of former aide Daniel Hall to the PSC without assurances that the Democratic governor also will name a Republican to the panel.
 
Hall's appointment is now scheduled to receive a Senate committee hearing Wednesday.

Illinois unveils draft of medical marijuana regulations

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 16:14 Published in Local News
   People in Illinois who want to use medical marijuana would have to be fingerprinted, undergo a background check and pay $150 a year for a special photo ID.  That's if the state health department's proposed regulations are adopted.  
   The nearly 50 page Draft DPH Medical Cannabis regulation document is now online, opening an informal public comment period.  
   Medical marijuana supporters are reacting to the proposed regulations unveiled Tuesday by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
   Chris Lindsey of the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington says the annual fee is burdensome for patients. He says states like Michigan charge less and generate big surpluses.
   But he applauds Illinois for proposing an advisory board to review petitions for adding medical conditions to the list approved for marijuana.
   Jim Champion is an Illinois veteran with multiple sclerosis. He says he's concerned that patients and caregivers can't get medical marijuana cards if they have firearm owners ID cards because of state and federal laws.
 
Today was the first chance for job seekers to apply for jobs at the new Ballpark Village development.
 
Applicants were invited to the SLATE Missouri Career Center, which is located at 1520 Market Street, to hear about the upcoming opportunities. This was the first of four open-call sessions, with the other scheduled for February 4 and 18, and March 4. The sessions run from 10AM - 5PM at the SLATE Missouri Career Center, which is located at 1520 Market Street, 1st floor conference room. No one will be hired at the sessions, but managers will decide who to invite back for an interview.
 
Pre-registration is required prior to the event. For more information call the Ballpark Village hotline at 314-657-3513. There are more of these open house session planned--with two in February and two more in March.
