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.
