Gov. Jay Nixon is reviving a commission that recommended widespread changes to Missouri's tax credit programs.
Nixon says the growing cost of state tax credits is reason to reconvene the Missouri Tax Credit Review Commission on Sept. 12.
The panel released a report in late 2010 recommending that Missouri eliminate some of its 61 tax credit programs and reduce or change others.
But lawmakers have done little because of a disagreement among those who want to pare back Missouri's tax breaks and others who want to create new incentives for businesses.
