ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A man accused of using a prosthetic penis to try to pass a drug test has been arrested in eastern Missouri.

<br><br>

Authorities say 34-year-old Sydney Levin was submitting a urine sample last week as part of his probation when an officer allegedly spotted him using a prosthetic known as a Whizzinator. The prosthetic is advertised as a "discreet" device that includes synthetic "medical grade urine."

<br><br>

KMOV-TV reports that Levin, of Lake St. Louis, was charged last week with possessing a forging instrument. He was arrested and released after posting $25,000 bond. He pleaded not guilty Monday.

<br><br>

Authorities say Levin's probation required him to submit a urine sample as part of drug test. He was on probation for possession of a controlled substance and felony stealing.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has passed a nearly $25 billion budget that would fund modest increases for public education but not the Medicaid expansion sought by Gov. Jay Nixon.

<br><br>

House approval of the budget Thursday sends it to the Senate, where more changes are likely.

<br><br>

The 2014 budget plan would provide a roughly 2 percent increase in basic aid for public K-12 schools, colleges and universities. But school funding would still fall $620 million short of what's called for under a state formula.

<br><br>

Missouri's Tourism Division would get one of the largest percentage increases in the budget - from nearly $14 million this year to almost $20 million next year.

<br><br>

The budget leaves out more than $900 million of federal funds that Nixon had recommended for a Medicaid expansion.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri has approved legislation seeking to reinstate a cap on some damages in medical malpractice lawsuits after the state Supreme Court struck down the existing limit.

<br><br>

A 2005 law capped noneconomic damages in such cases at $350,000. It was part of a broader effort to curb liability lawsuits. The state high court ruled last summer that the cap is unconstitutional.

<br><br>

House members voted 93-62 on Thursday to pass legislation that attempts to impose the damages limit while avoiding the constitutional problem referenced by the court. It now goes to the Senate.

<br><br>

Supporters of limiting noneconomic damages contend it would reduce health care costs and help keep doctors in Missouri. Opponents say there is a fundamental constitutional right to a jury trial.
