Updated:

KANSAS SCHOOL FUNDING

  • In Kansas a special legislative committee on public school funding holds its first meeting today.  It follows an October State Supreme court order to boost funding.  The court said a plan to phase in a $293 million dollar increase was still inadequate, and directed lawmakers to enact a new law before July.

PITT CHILD CARE

  • Crawford County is dealing with a shortage of quality childcare and local leaders are looking for a solution.  On Friday, the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce invited community leaders to discuss the problem at their "First Friday Luncheon".      Part of the conversation focused on how a lack of adequate childcare hurts local economic growth and local families.

TRUCK DRIVER IDENTIFIED

  • A Colorado man is identified as the driver of a truck involved in a deadly crash that claimed the life of a Missouri Southern student.  Illinois State Police say 53-year-old Mohamed Yussuf Jama of Greeley, Colorado was driving the tractor trailer when it crashed into several vehicles that had either slowed or stopped in a construction zone.  The investigation is ongoing and so far no citations have been issued to Jama.

GOP TAX BILL

  • GOP lawmakers will now try to find common ground between the tax overhaul bills passed by the House and Senate.  The potential sticking points could be last-minute changes made to the senate bill, in order to secure enough votes to pass it.  The goal is to have a final copy on the president's desk by Christmas.
