Still no word on a new stadium for the Cardinals, but the Missouri legislature says okay to one for MU. Karyn Dest reports from Jefferson City.

There's good news and bad news for MU Tiger basketball fans. The good news is, the Missouri legislature gave the go-ahead for a 75-million dollar arena, funded in part by a 25-million dollar anonymous donation.

The bad news? Governor Bob Holden says he's not sure he'll sign the resolution.

Contents: "We're looking at it to see if fiscally it's a wise thing for a state to do and to see if I can be encouraged to sign it so to speak. I mean, I've got a real problem with the bill's contruction."

Holden says he'll decide whether or not to sign the resolution in the next 30 to 45 days. From Jefferson City, Karyn Dest, KMOX News.
