JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - A bipartisan group of current and former Missouri officials is calling for federal leaders to address the national debt.

Leaders of Missouri's chapter of the Campaign to Fix the Debt plan a news conference Monday at the state Capitol. The chapter's co-chairmen are former U.S. Sen. Kit Bond, a Republican, and former Gov. Bob Holden, a Democrat.

Others who are involved include Democratic state Treasurer Clint Zweifel and Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder.

The national Campaign to Fix the Debt claims a membership of more than 300,000 business leaders, citizens and current and former elected officials. The organization also is urging efforts to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" of federal tax increases and spending cuts that could push the economy into recession.
