The Governor will go ahead with his plan to let Mexican trucks travel through Missouri even though some senators have asked him to rethink it.
Chris Fink has the story from Jefferson City.
State senators Harry Kennedy of St. Louis and Sarah Steelman of Rolla asked the Governor to reconsider by proposing a resolution last week.
The Governor's project would allow truckers to use special customs checkpoints in Kansas City and Monterey, Mexico while bypassing the usual border crossings.
The Senators feel the project will make Missouri roads unsafe, while the Governor says the program will not compromise safety.
Missouri trucking groups have also raised concerns about the Governor's plan.
