Tim Jones: Amendment To Jobs Bill Saves Pro-Life Tax Credits

Jefferson City, MO – Representative Tim Jones (R-Eureka), in his capacity as Majority Floor Leader, successfully assisted his colleague, Representative Jay Barnes (R-Jefferson City) in amending the jobs bill [SB8] under consideration by the Missouri House last Thursday to save pro-life pregnancy resource center tax credits from expiration in 2015.

“Pregnancy resource centers offer assistance, comfort and support to mothers facing difficult pregnancies,” Jones said, “These centers save and improve the lives of both Missouri mothers and children.”

The pregnancy resource center tax credits provide personal income tax credits to Missouri taxpayers who make donations supporting these life-affirming charitable organizations. Without Rep. Barnes’ amendment and the Floor Leader’s assistance in attaching that amendment to the bill, the credits would have expired in 2015.
