Republican lumber businessman Jason Plummer of O’Fallon and Democratic former regional schools superintendent Brad Harriman of O’Fallon are the winners of Illinois’ primary in the 12th congressional district.
They will face off Nov. 6 in the general election to replace Illinois Congressman Jerry Costello. The longtime democratic congressman announced last October that he won’t seek another term in the Southern Illinois district after more than two decades.
Mo. Senators pushing legislation to make information available about grants and budget cuts
The legislation would require details about federal grants worth at least $1 million to be posted on the Missouri Accountability Portal, which is an online tool for tracking state expenses. It also would require the governor to post a daily report on that website listing how much money he has withheld from state agencies and programs to help balance the budget.
