Missouri lawmakers completed their 2010 session Friday. Here's a look at some of the legislation sent to Gov. Jay Nixon:
Here are some of the bills that failed to pass the legislative session that ended Friday.
Various proposals would have created new tax incentives for manufacturers that retain jobs by improving their factories; granted Missouri businesses an edge in getting existing tax incentives; and used a portion of the taxes from technology companies to recruit other such firms.
The minimum age for getting a permit to carry a concealed gun would have been lowered from 23 to 21 years old.
People receiving state cash assistance would have been required to pass drug tests or lose benefits, and elected state officials would have faced a similar requirement.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and Department of Higher Education would have been combined and governed by a single board.
Proposals would have allowed a no-excuses-needed early-voting period before Election Day and authorized a requirement that Missourians show a government-issued photo ID to vote.
Missouri would have eliminated state holidays for Truman Day on May 8 and Lincoln Day on Feb. 12, as part of an effort to save money in the budget.
Lawmakers dropped an attempt to open a market for horse slaughter in Missouri by charging fees that would be used to pay for federal inspections.
State workers first hired in 2011 would have been required to contribute 4 percent of their pay to the retirement system and would not have been eligible for retirement until later than allowed under current law.
Differing versions would have set up a system for distributing money to public K-12 schools when state money falls short of the amount called for under a school funding formula. Other proposals would have reduced state spending on summer school.
A proposed constitutional amendment would have eliminated the state individual and corporate income tax and replaced it with a higher sales tax charged on a wider variety of goods and services.
Gov. Jay Nixon, senators and House Democrats pushed for new limits on state tax credits, but House Republicans refused to consider the reductions.
