JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The bust of radio host Rush Limbaugh now is on display at the Missouri Capitol with fellow members of the Hall of Famous Missourians.

The induction of the conservative talk show icon has prompted controversy. Limbaugh was honored during a ceremony at the Capitol that was open to reporters but not to the general public. House Democrats sought to prevent the bust from being displayed in the Capitol rotunda.

Several dozen people have been chosen for the Hall of Famous Missourians, generally by House speakers. Others include President Harry Truman, Walt Disney, George Washington Carver and Stan Musial.
