The Missouri Legislature once again has failed to pass bills aimed at clamping down on ethics laws considered some of the loosest in the nation.

Columbia Regional Airport is open after it had to close overnight to remove a plane that got stuck in the mud. This is the second plane that has gotten stuck at the airport in two months. Columbia Public Works says the current runways at the airport are out-of-date, and many FAA requirements have changed since the original construction was completed in the 1960s. A five-year master plan at the airport will update its runways and terminal. The first phase of the project is aimed to fix the tight turns pilots are forced to make at the airport.
For the second time in about a month an American Airlines plane got stuck in the mud closing the Columbia Regional Airport overnight.
