JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to legislation that would require scrap metal dealers to collect more information from the people who sell them metal.

A 2008 state law required scrap dealers to keep records for transactions involving aluminum and copper. The new legislation would require dealers to also record sales involving catalytic converters. Dealers also would have to keep track of the license plate numbers of sellers.

Scrap metal dealers would be prohibited from buying metal that is identified as belonging to telecommunications or cable providers.

The legislation gained final approval Friday, and it now goes to Gov. Jay Nixon.

 

Illinois Senate passes medical marijuana bill

Friday, 17 May 2013 13:18 Published in Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Medical marijuana use in Illinois is now in Gov. Pat Quinn's hands after the state Senate approved legislation.

Lawmakers voted 35-21 Friday to send the measure to Quinn for final approval. Quinn hasn't signaled whether he will sign it into law.

The proposal allows physicians to prescribe marijuana to patients with specific terminal illnesses or debilitating medical conditions. Cancer, multiple sclerosis and HIV are among the 33 illnesses listed in the bill.

The measure gives a framework for a four-year pilot program that includes requiring patients and caregivers to undergo background checks.

Supporters say marijuana can relieve continual pain without triggering the detrimental side effects of other prescription drugs. Opponents say the program could encourage the recreational use of marijuana especially among teenagers.

Police ID man who died during road rage incident

Friday, 17 May 2013 13:16 Published in Local News

Police have identified the man who died during a bizarre road rage incident.

The incident started on westbound I-70 at the Union exit when an SUV, driven by Darvin Wallace, started follow a box truck. While following the truck, Wallace started ramming the other vehicle. Wallace eventually got out of his SUV and started beating on the truck with a hammer. That is when Wallace climbed onto the side of the truck. The driver tried to shake him off the truck and Wallace fell on the street where the truck driver accidentally ran him over.

Wallace was taken to the hospital and died later on Thursday.
