Missouri Lowers Tax Rate
From Yahoo! Finance:
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon reaffirmed his opposition Thursday to a Republican-backed plan that would cut Missouri income taxes for individuals and businesses while raising the state sales tax for the benefit of schools, roads and a mental hospital.
“Increasing sales taxes on all Missourians and shifting the burden on to seniors and veterans on fixed incomes is not the right approach to growing our economy or creating jobs,” Nixon said in a written statement.
