Kansas City, MO –

  • A judge in Jefferson City today indicated today that unless the state can prove some justification for the sharp increase in motor vehicle and drivers license record fees, the price should be subject to the limits imposed by the state Sunshine Law.
  • The bitter turf-battle between the Kansas City and Independence school districts continues tomorrow, but encouraging headlines may be misleading. A settlement announcement is not on the agenda and a separate lawsuit complicates the issue.
  • President Bush has left Kansas City and left the campaign war chest of Nick Jordan $400,000 richer. The president flew into Olathe earlier today for a fundraiser for the Republican challenger of third district Congressman Dennis Moore.
  • The 2008 legislative session in Kansas officially came to a close today. Legislators did not attempt to override any of the governor's vetoes at the closing session.

  • KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and award-winning podcasts.
