Challengers Loralee Mondl and Jeffrey Morrell drew roughly twice as many votes as the incumbents, School Board President Janet Strate and member Steve Banton.

The bond measure, which required a four-sevenths majority for passage, would have provided for renovations, security measures and other updates.

Voters in St. Louis City and St. Louis County also voted to pass Proposition P, also known as the Arch Tax. A sales tax hike of 3/16 of a cent will now go towards improving parks, trails, and the Gateway Arch. A tax increase of that size adds up to about 2 cents for every $10 dollars spent. It's expected to raise about $780 million over the next 20 years, or about $39 million a year. Prop P had to pass in both the city and county. It passed in the city with 67% of the vote, and it passed in the county with 53%.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri has used a state budget reserve fund to improve its cash flow.

 

The Office of Administration reported that $175 million was borrowed from the Budget Reserve Fund in March. The state now has used $375 million during the current year. All the money will be repaid by May 15.

 

Budget Director Linda Luebbering said Tuesday the state regularly uses the reserve fund during March. She says those who receive tax refunds frequently file faster than those who owe additional taxes.

 

Officials also reported Tuesday that state revenues through the first three-quarters of the fiscal year have increased 8.3 percent compared with last year.

 

Individual tax collections are up about 5.3 percent and corporate income taxes are up 4.3 percent. Sales taxes are up less than 1 percent.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Department of Revenue has complied with a Senate subpoena and delivered thousands of documents relating to new driver's license procedures.

The Republican-led Senate requested the documents over concerns that license applicants' personal documents scanned into a state computer system are shared with the federal government or a private company.

Revenue Department officials have denied that they are sharing copies of personal documents, such as concealed weapons endorsements and birth certificates.

The documents were delivered Tuesday to Senate Appropriations Chairman Kurt Schaefer, of Columbia, roughly an hour before the 4 p.m. subpoena deadline.

CHICAGO (AP) - Gay rights advocates say Sen. Mark Kirk's announcement that he supports gay marriage is "a sign of progress."

Kirk posted a statement on his blog Tuesday saying same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. He says what matters in life is who you love and "government has no place in the middle."

He is the second Republican in the U.S. Senate to back same-sex marriage.

Rick Garcia is director of the Equal Marriage Illinois Project. He says momentum is growing for marriage equality, especially among Republicans.

Opponents like Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute disagree. Higgins says Kirk and other Republicans who back gay marriage are contributing to the destruction of marriage and diminished religious liberty.
