ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Sen. Claire McCaskill and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay are among those urging renewal of federal legislation that they say has a proven record of providing job opportunities in Missouri.

The two Democrats plan to discuss their support for renewing the expired Workforce Investment Act during a news conference Monday afternoon at Soldiers’ Memorial in St. Louis.

McCaskill’s office says she will highlight the importance of the Workforce Investment Act in helping military veterans look for jobs when they return to civilian life.
