Local politicians unite for "clean" cause

(KMOV) -- The state of Missouri wants you to help clean it up.

On Wednesday, some big political names like St. Louis County Executive Charley Dooley and Bridgeton Mayor Conrad Bowers joined a litter pick-up crew along Interstate 270.

They're drawing attention to a problem they say not only hurts the state's image, but also its budgets. The state spends more than $5 million a year cleaning up roadsides.

Some states require that drivers keep a trash bag in their cars at all times. The St. Louis County Police Chief says that might not be a bad idea for Missouri.
