JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's final tab has come in from a disastrous 2011 that included the Joplin tornado and widespread flooding. The costs are a lot less than what Gov. Jay Nixon originally anticipated.

Figures provided to The Associated Press by Nixon's budget office show that the state's share for the disasters is a little over $36 million.

That's merely a quarter of the $150 million that Nixon set aside for disaster aid in 2011.

Nixon's budget director, Linda Luebbering, says there was no dollar-for-dollar tracking of how the rest of the money was used. She says it simply got rolled into the general revenue pool for government operations and services.

Legislative budget leaders say Nixon's $150 million set-aside was an unnecessary budget manipulation.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The ACLU of Illinois says the state's abortion notification law will go into effect in 35 days.

The Illinois Supreme Court issued a ruling Thursday that ended a lengthy and emotionally charged legal battle of a 1995 law that's never been enforced. It requires doctors to notify a girl's parents of her abortion 48 hours before the procedure. It applies to girls 17 and younger.

The ACLU represented the southeastern Illinois clinic and the director of the University of Illinois at Chicago's Center for Reproductive Health in the case.

The group says the measure "jeopardizes the health and safety of young women."

The ACLU says it will spend the next weeks working with health care providers and lawyers to counsel girls.

Guns, drugs and the arrest of more than 150 people in the St Louis area is the result of a four month undercover investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

For four months--more than 80 ATF agents from around the country as well as federal prosecutors and local police were involved in a massive drugs and arms investigation.  It's known as The Violent Crime Reduction Partnership and is the ninth “multi-month” operation conducted by the ATF. 

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports on Wednesday 159 people were arrested.   Agents say they have more than 1,700 previous arrests between them, and 78 percent are previously convicted felons.

Agents also seized 267 guns as well as more than seven pounds of marijuana, three pounds of cocaine, a pound and a half of heroin and 25 ounces of meth.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has vetoed legislation that included designating part of Interstate 70 as "Graham's Picnic Rock Highway."

Nixon said in his veto message Thursday that the name refers to the Dr. Robert Graham, who owned the farm where the large rock is located.

The rock can be seen in the median of Interstate 70 roughly halfway between Columbia and the St. Louis region.

The governor said a popular outing during the 1880s was to drive horses and buggies to the rock for a picnic. But the rock also has been called "slave rock," which Nixon says comes from a belief that slave auctions occurred at the site.

Nixon says the highway designation would have elevated one part of the site's history above the others.
