Missouri's main business incentives are getting a makeover.

Gov. Jay Nixon signed legislation Thursday that consolidates four of the state's current incentives into a new program dubbed "Missouri Works."

The new program is modeled after a current set of incentives called "Quality Jobs" in that it offers tax breaks to businesses that add jobs with decent wages and health benefits.

Missouri lawmakers have passed legislation consolidating four of the state's business incentives.

The newly created Missouri Works program would be modeled after the current Quality Jobs program, which would come to an end.
