State legislators meet Sept. 11 to vote on whether to override several of Gov. Jay Nixon’s vetoes, including his veto of House Bill 253, a bill that would lower the state’s corporate and individual tax rates. In the week leading up to the session, individuals and organizations are investing in ads both for and against the legislation. Parties taking their message to the airwaves include Rex Sinquefield, who has invested nearly $2.4 million in ads to support tax-cut legislation, and a Missouri teachers union, which has contributed $100,000 for ads against the cuts.
