The Missouri Senate spent several hours last night working on a wide-ranging tax credit bill, which they gave first-round approval to at around 3:30 this morning.
Senate Bill 120 would drastically cut incentives for Historic Preservation and low income housing. Historic Preservation tax credits would be capped at $50 million a year, instead of the current $140 million, and low income Housing incentives would be capped at $55 million a year. Senator Jamilah Nasheed (D, St. Louis) criticized the move.
