This week, the Missouri House of Representatives passed a proposal requiring Missouri voters to bring government-issued photo identification to vote. Gov. Jay Nixon's Medicaid expansion plan was left out of 2014's budget. Also, the House is considering a bill reducing the penalty for marijuana possession in a way similar to Columbia's marijuana ordinance.
