A Missouri commission is considering a new policy on using traffic cameras. The proposal on the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission's agenda would affect cities and counties that install cameras to enforce speed limits or stop lights on state highways.

Kansas farmers will be able to operate farm vehicles across Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma state lines without getting a commercial driver's license under a multistate agreement.
