A Senate committee approved a plan to exempt tobacco settlement money from Hancock refunds. Aaron Cummins has the story from Jefferson City--
The vote went along straight party lines... 4 Democrats in favor and 3 Republicans against.
Republican Steve Ehlmann says if the people vote against the measure, things will be right back where they are today... waiting for a court decision on how Missouri can use tobacco money.
Instead, Ehlmann supports a plan to give voters two choices.
But, Democrats support the plan as is.
And, that's the plan on its way to the Senate floor.
