Nixon to discuss plan to make government leaner

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon will make two stops on Wednesday to discuss his plans for making Missouri's government more lean and for promoting economic growth.

The Democrat will speak at 11:15 a.m. at the Reynolds Alumni Center on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, and at 1:30 p.m. at the Olin School of Business on the Washington University campus in St. Louis.

Nixon laid out his plan three weeks ago in Springfield, and is expected to give a progress report on Wednesday in remarks to business leaders, MBA students and business faculty at the two universities.
