JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says officials are making progress toward completing an agreement on a dog-breeding law to make revisions embraced by the governor.

The legislature earlier passed legislation to rewrite a dog-breeding law that voters approved last year. Nixon didn't say Wednesday if he'll sign or veto that legislation.

Nixon says officials are working to determine the order of what must happen to implement a dog breeding compromise that Nixon's administration brokered among agricultural and other groups. Nixon had a meeting Wednesday in the House speaker's office.

Legislative supporters of the dog-breeding bill say Nixon's signature on that measure is a key starting point for a separate dog measure. Lawmakers and agriculture groups have sent Nixon a letter urging him to sign the bill.
