Two Saint Louis lawmakers are sponsoring legislation to create a trust fund that would help open an archives center in Saint Louis City. The state archive center would be an addition to the archive center that already exists in Jefferson City.

St. Louis County Representative Kathlyn Fares says having the archives in Saint Louis would be more convenient than Jefferson City.
