GOVERNOR NIXON SIGNS TWO FINANCIAL BILLS
Governor Jay Nixon has signed a pair of bills intended to provide financial protections to businesses and public employees.
One of the bills signed Tuesday would block arrangements in which public employees sign over their future pension rights to get an upfront lump sum of money - sort of like a payday loan.
State Treasurer Clint Zweifel says Missouri is the first state to prohibit public pension advances. Vermont recently enacted a law regulating pension advances.
Nixon also signed a bill banning schemes in which businesses receive letters or emails claiming in bad faith that they are infringing on a patent and demanding money as compensation. Other states also have enacted laws taking aim at so-called patent trolls.
WEBSITE ESTABLISHED TO HELP OVERSEAS SERVICE MEMBERS VOTE
Missouri residents stationed elsewhere because of military service can now use a state website to get ballots for elections.
Secretary of State Jason Kander says the website allows people to create a secure account to register to vote and to request and receive absentee ballots.
He says the website is the first of its kind nationally.
The website can be used not only by military members but also by their relatives, Peace Corps workers and Missouri voters who are working for religious charities in other countries.
CHANGE IN DEER OVERSIGHT VETOED BY GOVERNOR NIXON
Governor Jay Nixon has vetoed legislation that would have shifted responsibility for regulating Missouri deer ranches to the Department of Agriculture instead of the Department of Conservation.
Nixon said he vetoed the bill Tuesday partly because he believes it would thwart the state's efforts to prevent deer disease.
The legislation would have classified captive deer as livestock, similar to cattle, hogs and sheep. That would have subjected deer ranchers to agricultural rules and made them eligible for sales tax exemptions.
The measure was backed by the deer ranching industry and others who are opposed to tougher regulations being proposed by the Conservation Department. Last month, the agency endorsed a proposed rule change that would ban the importation of deer from other states and require double fencing for new permit holders.
