A crowd of close to 5000 people is expected for tomorrow's

(Wednesday's) state veto session. Because of the crowds, extra

security measures are being taken. Kyle Elfrink has the story from

Jefferson City.

An unexpected species was moving through the capital on

Tuesday. Bomb sniffing dogs canvassed the chambers of both the House

and the Senate. Capital police captain, Lou Tedeschi (Te-DESH-ee),

says the dogs, along with extra law enforcement, are simply a

precaution ...

RunTime: 16
OutCue: "WHAT OCCURS."
Contents: THE DOGS ARE BEING USED TO INSURE THE SAFETY OF BOTH THE PUBLIC AND LEGISLATORS DURING THE VETO SESSION.

Anti-abortion supporters are charging the governor with

using the extra security measures in order to draw attention away from

the partial-birth abortion vote.

Extra police officers and heightened security will be a part

of tommorrow's (Wednesday's) state veto session. Kyle Elfrink has

that story from Jefferson City.

Missouri's veto session has become the hottest event

in the state -- close to 5000 people are expected on the steps of the

capital building. Capital police captain, Lou Tedeschi (Te-DESH-ee),

says although extra security is planned, few problems are expected ...

Actuality:TED6
RunTime: 15
OutCue: "THIS ISSUE"
Contents: TEDESCHI SAYS THAT HE HAS RECEIVED ASSURANCES FROM ORGANIZERS THAT VIOLENCE OF ANY KIND WILL NOT TAKE PLACE DURING THE SESSION.

When pressed for answers as to why the heightened security is

needed, Tedeschi pointed to the size of crowd expected. Still, past

crowds of this size have failed to warrant as much police attention.
