Things we’re watching today:

Rep.

Sam Graves

holds a town hall on the KCI expansion at Riverside City Hall, 4 p.m.

Graves isn’t a big fan of the expansion, to put it mildly. So we can expect a rather one-sided discussion, but we’ll see.

The

Jackson County Legislature

will continue discussion of a half-cent sales tax for medical research, to go on the November ballot.

Not everyone is a big fan of this idea, either. But we’ll see.
