Additional funding for the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program would not hire new patrolmen, but it would fund more overtime hours for those already on the payroll. Missouri Representative Gracia Backer says the highway patrol will ask the legislature for the money in the next session.

Contents: People must see visability. Drivers need to know they are liable for violations like speeding and traffic violations. And as Missourians know, Missouri has a lot of drug trafficking.

Backer appeared at a press conference to show her support for the program. From the state capitol, I'm Stacy Covitz.
