Missouri Senate Approves $24 billion Budget
The Missouri Senate on Wednesday signed off on a $24 billion budget that gives a raise to state workers and avoids cuts to a health care program for the blind, KSDK reports. The budget will provide a 2 percent raise for tens of thousands of state workers who earn up to $45,000 a year. Senators also voted to continue funding a program that provides free health coverage to 2,800 blind residents. The Senate and House must pass a final budget by May 11.
