As technology continues to advance, so must the library. That’s according to Thomas Peters, dean of Missouri State’s Duane G. Meyer Library. Peters said bringing these tools into its facility is important to engage a younger audience and keep ideas fresh.

To do this, the library is gaining an “interdisciplinary” space — home to the newest technologies, like drones and tetherless virtual reality devices.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ “No MO Red Tape” project is six months ahead of schedule, said the Governor’s Deputy Counsel Justin Smith.

The project launched in January when Greitens signed Executive Order 17-03, ordering all governmental agencies to undergo a review of all proposed or passed regulations in the Code of State Regulations.

“We’ve received almost 6,000 comments from people writing in on ways we can clean up state regulations,” Smith said in Springfield Wednesday. “Our folks are working hard. They’re actually on pace to finish a lot earlier than scheduled.”
