JEFFERSON CITY - A central Missouri college soon could have a new name with a statewide appeal.
Missouri senators gave final approval Thursday to a bill changing the name of Linn State Technical College to the State Technical College of Missouri.
If Gov. Jay Nixon signs the bill, the name change would take effect on July 1, 2014.
The school in the central Missouri town of Linn already was the only two-year technical college given a statewide role under Missouri law. Sen. Mike Kehoe, a Republican from Jefferson City, says the new name will better reflect its mission.
The college offers certificates and associate degrees with an emphasis on industrial and technology programs.
