Governor Jay Nixon is getting more stimulus money for Missouri than predicted. In his budget for Fiscal Year 2010, Nixon designated more than $800 million for in state stabilization funds. Out of the four billion dollars Missouri is getting from the stimulus, one billion dollars will go towards in state stabilization. In Columbia, reporter Nathan Winters talks about what this cash infusion means for Missouri.
