MO Gov. to make stops in Springfield, West Plains

SPRINGFIELD, MO (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon scheduled visits to two southern Missouri cities Friday to discuss a state jobs program and exports of Missouri products.

Nixon planned to stop at Missouri State University in Springfield to talk about the State Parks Youth Corps. The program is funded through federal work force investment money and employs people ages 17 through 21 in state parks and historical sites during the summer.

Later Friday, Nixon was to tour two lumber companies in West Plains to talk about exporting Missouri products such as hardwood.
