JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri is looking for other sources of money for education and health care after experiencing shortfalls in gambling and tobacco revenues.
State budget director Linda Luebbering says revenues from casinos, cigarettes sales and the Missouri Lottery all are coming in lower than budgeted this year. Those revenues all are earmarked for education.
Gov. Jay Nixon is proposing to transfer $44 million from general revenues to make up for the lost education funding.
Missouri also is losing about $70 million of expected revenues from a legal settlement with tobacco companies, because an arbitration panel ruled the state failed to diligently enforce tobacco laws a decade ago.
Nixon is proposing to use general revenues to finance the health care programs that were supposed to get tobacco funds.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois man is scheduled to be sentenced for his role in a drug-trafficking ring prosecutors say also involved a judge who later resigned after being accused of heroin possession.
Sean McGilvery pleaded guilty in October to felony heroin conspiracy and possession charges in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis. That's where he's set to be sentenced Thursday.
Federal prosecutors say former St. Clair County judge Michael Cook was one of McGilvery's regular customers while he was on the bench.
Cook was arrested last year as part of an investigation that also focused on the cocaine-related death of a prosecutor-turned-judge at the Cook family's hunting cabin.
Cook has pleaded guilty to federal heroin and weapons possession counts. He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 26.
