Missouri GOP criticizes how Gov. Jay Nixon pays National Governors Association fees

They have regularly griped in recent years that Nixon takes funds from various state agencies to pay for costs associated with his office. Now they point to $390,000 in dues for the association over the past three years from the budget of the Department of Social Services. More than half of that money has come from the department’s administration of the Children’s Division, which oversees foster care. The practice was first reported in 2012 in a report by the state auditor.
