A bill to use the tobacco settlement money to cover Missouri's budget shortfall is on its way to the Governor. Michelle Wirth has more from Jefferson City.

The House had previously voted against the bill, but several Republicans and the Speaker of the House changed their minds. From Jefferson City, I'm Michelle Wirth.
