Gov. Jay Nixon said If lawmakers agree to fully fund Missouri’s public schools and rein in spending on the state’s biggest tax credit programs, he will sign a bill to cut taxes.
The framework of a potential deal comes after negotiations with Sen. Will Kraus, a Lee’s Summit Republican sponsoring tax cut legislation. Nixon vetoed Kraus’ bill last year, citing concerns that it could jeopardize basic funding for education and vital public services. Republican lawmakers returned to Jefferson City in January committed to taking another shot at a tax cut plan.
