ST. LOUIS — Gov. Jay Nixon will be in St. Louis to discuss his plans to use federal stimulus money to improve the state's economy.
Nixon will discuss his Transform Missouri Initiative during a Thursday tour of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. One part of the plan calls for embracing technologies to create high-tech, high-paying jobs.
On Monday, Nixon launched a Web site to solicit ideas from residents, local governments, businesses and non-profits.
Missouri is slated to receive about $4 billion from the stimulus package, although that amount does not include competitive grants the state might secure.
