State Capital Bureau
A top state Republican says the Missouri Attorney General should not sue the state Department of Natural Resources. David Schneider has more in Jefferson City.
A judge ruled the state Attorney General now has permission to sue the Department of Natural Resources for wanting to give away rights to a Booneville bridge on the Katy trail. State Senate Judiciary Committee vice chairman Robert Mayer says since the state does not own the bridge, the Attorney General should not sue.
The Missouri Attorney General's office says it's suing because a state official does not have the right to give up a state resource without the approval of the General Assembly and without compensation. From the state capital, I'm David Schneider.
