Nolte: Special Session on Jobs Welcomed

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - After months of work the Missouri House and Senate have reached an agreement on a comprehensive job creation package, which will be taken up in a Special Session later this year.

“I am excited to roll up my sleeves and address the most important issue to Missouri families, job creation,” said state Rep. Jerry Nolte, R-Gladstone. “We must level the playing field for businesses in Missouri and especially in Kansas City by providing the necessary tools to allow us to effectively compete to keep and expand jobs for Missouri workers.”

Included in this jobs package are bills that Nolte sponsored or supported including Job Retention for Kansas City, Data Center Incentives, Tax Amnesty and MOSIRA. The package is very similar to the proposal passed by the Missouri House on the final day of session and is estimated to save the state of Missouri $1.5 billion over the next fifteen years.

“While government does not create jobs, we can improve the economic environment where entrepreneurs can expand the opportunity for all our citizens to prosper,” observed Nolte. “Missouri families are suffering in these hard economic times and expect us to work together and bring down unemployment and under employment.”
