Nolte: Legislative Award from St. Louis Business Journal

JEFFERSON CITY Mo. – The St. Louis Business Journal has selected state Representative Jerry Nolte, R-Gladstone, as a recipient of the 2011 Legislative Award. The honor is given annually to lawmakers who have positively impacted the business interests of Missouri residents. Nolte was selected based on his efforts as the chairman of the House International Trade and Job Creation Committee and the numerous bills he handled during the 2011 session aimed at sparking job growth.

“We had a productive session with several key pieces of legislation that moved through the process,” said Nolte. “I’m excited by what we were able to accomplish but also motivated to get back to work to help create more jobs for Missouri families. I am honored to be recognized for my work but realize we have much more to do if we are going to make Missouri the competitive force it can be.”

Nolte sponsored a number of economic development bills in the 2011 session. He handled numerous bills aimed at addressing the “Fix the Six” issues identified by Missouri’s business leaders. Nolte also was the primary handler for legislation that will provide substantive tax relief to many Missouri businesses. He guided legislation through the process that will phase out Missouri’s corporate franchise tax and end what is, in effect, double taxation on approximately 3,000 Missouri businesses.

“We have to make Missouri an attractive location to do business and I believe our agenda is moving us closer and closer to that goal,” said Nolte. “We need existing businesses to stay and create more jobs within our borders as well as new companies to choose our state as the ideal location to do business. If we can continue down that road, the good-paying jobs Missouri families need should follow.”

Nolte will be presented with the award at the St. Louis Business Journal Legislative Awards Breakfast on June 17, 2011.
