Today's inauguaration broke tradition. Governor Carnhan moved the event indoors because of the cold weather. It was the first inauguration in thirty years that hasn't been held outside. Tracy Sadeghian has the story from the State Capitol.

It was standing room only as all three floors of the State Capitol Building were packed with Missourians watching Governor Mel Carnahan being sworn into a second term in office.

The Governor's inaugural address focused on educating the future leaders of Missouri..the children.

RunTime:
OutCue: "..one priority."

Mel Carnahan used his first act as governor to re-emphasize just how high a priority education will be for his administration.

As he did four years ago, immediately after his inauguration, Carnahan met with schools students from around the state.
