KOAM MORNING NEWS TO KNOW 2-14

FREE NEEDLES

  • The Missouri House advances a bill would allow organizations to provide free needles to drug users.  House members on Tuesday gave the bill initial approval in a voice vote.  Republican Representative Holly Rehder says organizations already pass out clean syringes to drug users.  But state law bans possessing drug paraphernalia, putting those needle exchanges in murky legal waters.

PARSONS CLEANUP

  • A lot of residents in Parsons, Kansas are cleaning up their acts by cleaning up their yards.  The city's building inspector and code enforcer has been cracking down on houses with junk in their yards, excessive brush piles, and inoperable vehicles.  When a complaint is filed, residents have 10 days to take care of the problem.  If they fail to comply, city employees will fix the problem, and send a bill to the violator.

IMMIGRATION REFORM

  • Senate lawmakers continue to work to reach a deal on immigration reform.  On Tuesday, Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer objected to an amendment that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities.  Democrats are demanding any immigration solution include protections for nearly 700,000 immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
