Nixon in St. Louis to talk about stimulus

Thursday, February 26, 2009 | 11:15 a.m. CST

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.
