MISSOURI--- The Missouri governor is asking for an extra $15 million in next year's budget to increase college scholarships. "Bright Flight Boost" would offer top students an extra $5,000 a year. In return, they would agree to work in Missouri at least one year for each year they received the scholarship. The proposal limits the offer to students with an SAT or ACT composite score in the top 3% of the state. Lawmakers will start looking at the 2015 budget in January.
