Missouri leaders are urging Governor Jay Nixon to not veto capital improvement projects this week that would be funded with Federal Stimulus dollars.

Nixon has told lawmakers he wants to draw down more Federal dollars through a bonding program.

House Speaker Ron Richard says he hopes the Governor won't use the federal program as an excuse to veto spending bills.

Announcements on line-item vetoes could be announced within days.

The budget for the State of Missouri is expected to be signed by this Friday.
