Missouri's official state manual has been banished to the Internet for the past few years. But it could make a return to print.
The Legislature has sent the governor a bill that would let the secretary of state's office share the electronic publication with a nonprofit organization, which would then print it and distribute to the public.
Known as the "Blue Book," the Official Manual of the State of Missouri contains information about public officials, state agencies, local governments, elections, political parties and various other things.
Legislation is on its way to Governor Jay Nixon (D) that would forbid the Missouri Department of Revenue from scanning and storing source documents of driver's license and non-driver's license applicants.
Physicians Assistants, or PAs, may soon have more opportunities to practice in Missouri. A bill headed to the Governor’s desk would provide more flexibility in how and where they provide care.Physicians Assistants are trained health workers who practice medicine under the supervision of a doctor. Their training is shorter than that of a doctor, but they do exams, prescribe drugs and diagnose and treat illnesses.
