JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - About a thousand Missouri union members rallied at the state Capitol to combat legislation that would prohibit labor contracts from requiring that all employees pay union fees.
 
The proposal is a top priority of House Republican leaders who say the so-called right to work bill is necessary for the state to compete for jobs.
 
But Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon disagreed while speaking at Wednesday's rally and said he would veto the bill. He called it "unnecessary and misguided," and vowed to fight the proposal if the Legislature decides to put it on the 2014 ballot.
 
The rally is an annual event sponsored by the Missouri State Building and Construction Trades Council. Rally attendees said it's important to talk with lawmakers about the impact of legislation affecting union membership.

SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) – Legislation that would allow minors and those with epilepsy to use medical cannabis in Illinois is one step closer to law.
 
A Senate committee passed the proposal on Tuesday without opposition.
 
State Sen. Iris Martinez is sponsoring the measure. The Democrat from Chicago says using medical marijuana improves the quality of life for minors suffering from epilepsy.
 
Supporters say consuming oil from the marijuana plant reduces seizures and doesn’t get children high. They say traditional epilepsy medicines are addictive and leave children feeling “stoned.”
 
Opponents say they’re against any measure legalizing marijuana use because it violates federal law. They also say legalizing marijuana for minors contradicts drug prevention programs.
 
The measure amending Illinois’ four-year medical cannabis pilot program now moves to the Senate floor.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is calling for a "rainy day fund" in the Illinois state budget.
 
The Democratic governor made the proposal in his annual budget address Wednesday.
 
He says officials "need to build our reserves to protect taxpayers in the event of an economic downturn or an emergency down the road."
 
It's part of what Quinn says is a plan to provide "stability" in the long-term budget. He also called for "solid spending caps" to ensure the state doesn't defer its financial obligation.
 
He did not say how much money should be reserved in the rainy day fund.

  CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County woman has pleaded guilty to killing her 13-month-old son after initially reporting the child as missing.
Tyler Dasher's body was discovered in November 2011 by two dog walkers at the edge of a wooded cemetery near the River Des Peres.
His mother Shelby Dasher had reported the child missing from their Affton home several hours earlier.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 23-year-old woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in St. Louis County Circuit Court to second-degree murder and abuse of a child resulting in death.  
Prosecutors are recommending concurrent 25-year sentences.
 
Dasher told police she repeatedly struck the child in his crib when he wouldn't stop crying. Her 26-year-old boyfriend Edgar Rivas faces felony charges of abandoning a corpse and evidence tampering.

   The city of Edwardsville is considering a quarter-percent sales tax increase to help pay for new fire and police stations.  That means shoppers would pay an extra 25 cents on every $100 they spend on goods and services within the city.  The tax hike would raise about $1.2 million in additional revenue each year.  
   Mayor Hal Patton tells Fox 2 News the number of homes has doubled in the city over the last four years, and the number of students at SIU-Edwardsville is also growing.  That growth, he says, is sometimes stretching emergency response times from the ususal 6-8 minutes to 16-to-18 minutes. "We feel these facilities are critically needed and we need to move forward with this plan," he said.
   Mayor Patton says everyone agrees that the new facilities are needed, the only controversy is over how to pay for them. He says a sales tax increase is more fair that the alternatives.  "We're better off having everybody pay a little bit as opposed to having our property tax payers burden the whole cost," he said.   
   The Edwardsville City Council meeting is expected to discuss the proposal at a special meeting on Thursday.
