Seg. 1: Missouri's Ballot Initiative Process. Seg. 2: Gearing Up For The AFC Championship.
Segment 1: After unprecedented ballot initiative success in November, GOP lawmakers look to change the process.
Gov. Mike Parson and Republican lawmakers in the Missouri General Assembly have made ballot initiative reform a priority for this legislative session, saying the current system is too easy for out-of-state interests and funding sources to exploit. Critics of that position say the reform proposals are an affront to voter's ability to directly influence state policy. Today, we heard from both sides of the issue.

Arrowhead Stadium has been around since 1972, but it has never hosted an AFC Championship game. That'll change on Sunday afternoon when the Chiefs face off against the New England Patriots. To end the week in a winning mood, we asked Kansas City fans and a former Chief where they prefer to take in a game of this magnitude.
