Final Weeks

Even though lawmakers passed the budget ahead of schedule, Missouri's Governor says there's much to be done.

Governor Jay Nixon wants to move forward on D-W-I reform and the Autism mandate.

Nixon also wants further cost-saving moves like consolidating the Departments of Elementary and Secondary Education and Higher Education as well as the Highway Patrol and Water Patrol.

Nixon says Ethics reform is another important issue, sighting the need for transparency in political funds as well as political hiring.
