JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri lawmakers are already setting their sights on potential laws for 2014. Republican legislators met this week to develop a plan for the coming state session. They call their priorities the four "G"s.  That covers guaranteeing access to a great education, guarding Missouri values, generating affordable & abundant energy, and growth & opportunity.

"We need to grow our state, we need to grow the economy. We need to provide jobs for people. We need to provide the opportunity for people to get off the unemployment rolls, to get off Medicaid, to get off public assistance," said Charlie Davis, Missouri Representative, District 162.

One goal not on the list - Medicaid expansion. The governor has been pushing for more coverage but many lawmakers say the cost is prohibitive.
