SEDALIA — Gov. Jay Nixon heads to two western Missouri communities to announce a new plan for creating jobs and boosting the state's economy.
The governor scheduled news conferences Monday at businesses in Excelsior Springs and Hopkins to outline the details.
Nixon says the "Missouri Works" proposal was developed from a report designed as a five-year blueprint for economic development in the state.
Nixon delivers his State of the State speech Jan. 17 to a joint session of the House and Senate. Governors traditionally use the address to outline priorities for the legislative session.
