Intro: St. Louis County Democratic Representative John Bowman returned to the state Capitol Thursday for the first time since being indicted for bank and credit fraud.  Micah (MIKE-ah) Wiener (WINE-er) reports from Jefferson City:

Representative Bowman says he will not resign his position, but his fate as a member of House committees is up in the air.

House Speaker Rod Jetton says it's up to Democratic Leader Jeff Harris to decide whether Bowman should serve such an important committee.
