JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Governor Jay Nixon is set to sign legislation intended to help clean up a vacant property.
Nixon will be in the Kansas City on Monday for a signing ceremony on the bill that would authorize the city to create a so-called "land bank."
The government entity would have the power to acquire abandoned properties so they can be improved and resold.
