Nance: Special Session?

Missouri’s Republican legislative leaders traveled through Columbia, St. Louis, and Kansas City Wednesday to announce a proposed agenda for a potential Special Session to run concurrent with Veto Session. The proposal is similar to the package offered during the recent legislative session. It involves economic development packages and adjustments to many of our state’s tax credit programs. The package is intended to attract and enhance jobs for our state. This bill covers the Aerotropolis in St. Louis to bring in jobs and the retention of Missouri businesses which might intent to move to Kansas.

It also provides funding of Missouri Science and Reinvestment (MOSIRA) to attract science and innovative companies to Missouri. Language is provided to create more Data Centers for high tech next-generation IT jobs to the state.

There has been some discussion of tapping the”Rainy Day Fund” to cover many costs in Joplin. By law, the money used must be put back in the fund within a three year period.

Moving the date of Missouri’s presidential preference primary to March 6, from its currently scheduled February date was vetoed by the Governor because of other issues in SB 282. Both parties are threatening sanctions if the move isn't made. The Governor may request that we take that issue up in Special Session.

In the District

I continue to share my experiences with groups throughout the district and for constituents who encounter bureaucratic problems.

I attended a Senior Fair event for Clay County residents with Representative Jerry Nolte on July 9th and a Tri-County event for seniors at the Ray County Health Center on the 21st.

Congratulations to Carl and Eileen Looman on their 75th Wedding Anniversary July 23rd, and John and Kathy Goode were honored for their 50th Wedding Anniversary recently. I can provide a resolution from the state for that special anniversary for your loved ones.

There was plenty of heat, but the Ray County Fair provided an excellent opportunity for 4-H members to show their prize animals last week.
