The Missouri House defeated a collective bargaining plan today/Tuesday 89 to 73. Lori Prichard reports from Jefferson City.

One Missouri lawmaker says the House vote sent a message to Senators who support collective bargaining. State Senator John Schneider says pressure from rural members of the Missouri State Teachers Association has shut down the debate in both the House and Senate.

Contents: Schneider says teachers must be taken out of the bill to give other public employees collective bargaining rights.

Schneider says that although he prefers to keep teachers included in the debate, he says excluding them is a political necessity.
