Governor Pat Quinn signed a bill that will close a loophole in sex offender rules.

The law will ban convicted sex offenders from playgrounds of recreation areas in private buildings. That means offenders will not be able to set foot in play areas like those found in McDonalds restaurants.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House member and his wife are going to court over what they say is a requirement that their group health insurance include coverage for contraception.

The Thomas More Society filed a federal lawsuit in St. Louis on Wednesday on behalf of Paul and Teresa Wieland. Paul Wieland is a Republican from Imperial.

According to court documents, the family previously opted out of coverage for contraceptives, sterilization or abortifacients. The lawsuit contends the Wielands have been told their coverage must now include contraception and sterilization because of the federal health care law.

The Wielands contend their religious, free speech and parental rights have been violated. The lawsuit seeks a declaratory judgment and an injunction.

A convicted murderer who was released from prison early, is charged for murdering a second person and dumping the body in Horseshoe Lake.

Scott Thompson was convicted of murder in 1989, but was released in February of this year after serving just 24 years of his 45-year sentence.

Now investigators believe Thompson killed 20-year-old Dakota Jones and left his body in the lake. Thompson was released because his conviction predated Illinois' "truth in sentencing" laws. The new rules require that murderers serve their entire sentence.

Thompson faces two counts of first-degree murder.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A federal grand jury in Kansas City has indicted 18 people on charges accusing them of conspiring to transport more than $17 million worth of contraband cigarettes to New York.

The 43-count indictment, unsealed Wednesday, says hundreds of thousands of cartons of contraband cigarettes were taken from the Kansas City area to New York, where they were sold primarily on Indian reservations. Federal prosecutors accuse the group of running the operation from 2010 until last year.

The indictment says two defendants bought about $17.3 million worth of contraband cigarettes from undercover agents and transported about 620,000 cartons to New York without paying the required $4.35 per pack excise tax. Prosecutors estimate the scheme cost New York more than $8 million in state excise taxes.

The defendants are from several states, including Missouri and Kansas.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones is rallying support for an effort to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of tax-cutting legislation.

Jones, a Republican from Eureka, says reducing taxes would grow the economy, create additional economic opportunities and allow more funding for education. On Wednesday, Nixon was renewing his objections to the tax legislation in southern Missouri. The Democratic governor has traveled throughout the state to defend the veto.

Nixon's asserts the tax cut would jeopardize funding for government services and boost taxes on prescription drugs.

Jones told supporters in Fulton on Tuesday that he sees "the momentum on our side." He says it is a commonsense measure.

House Republicans are meeting this week to discuss possible veto overrides. Missouri lawmakers return to the state Capitol on Sept. 11.
