    Gov. Jay Nixon has put the kibosh on plans to sell beer and wine at the Missouri Capitol.

    Nixon vetoed legislation Thursday that would have allowed alcohol sales at Capitol events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the building or the 200th anniversary of Missouri’s statehood.

    The governor said alcohol sales could have presented a poor image to children and families who visit the Capitol.
