McCaskill to host business roundtables

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Senator Claire McCaskill is gathering ideas from Missouri business owners in a series of roundtable discussions.

All three sessions were planned for Tuesday, starting with an 11:30 a.m. stop at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

McCaskill also planned to hold similar events at 2:30 p.m. at Riceland Foods in the southeast Missouri town of Marston, and at 5:15 p.m. at the Mountain Complex in Branson.

McCaskill's office says the Democratic senator wants to learn what business owners believe the government can do better to help support economic development and encourage job creation.
