JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon intends to discuss his plans for developing the state's electrical power system.

Nixon planned a news conference Friday at the Governor's Mansion in Jefferson City. Later, the governor was to speak in St. Louis and Springfield and to appear with utility officials and labor unions. The governor's office has not elaborated on the announcement.
