Gov. Perry Draws Strong Reactions in Missouri Business Tour
The head of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce is defending his support of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s efforts to lure Missouri businesses to Texas.
“That’s not what this is about,” Chamber President Dan Mehan says. “This is about trying to make Missouri more competitive as far as passing [HB] 253 into law so we can keep our costs low, the cost of doing business.”
HB 253 is an income tax cut that was passed by the Missouri Legislature but vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon. Republicans will attempt to override that veto in a session next month.
