Kennedy says he is willing to work with the Governor on his proposal allowing truckers to use special customs checkpoints in Kansas City and Monterey, Mexico while bypassing the usual border crossings.

The Governor's proposal is designed to provide a economic boost in Missouri, but Kennedy is concerned about the proposal's effects.
