Jefferson City lawmaker pledges Quality Jobs study
Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Assuming Jefferson City voters send him back to the Capitol for a second two-year term, state Rep. Jay Barnes plans to lead “a thorough review of the Missouri Quality Jobs Act and other so-called economic development tax credits in the next legislative session.”
Barnes, R-Jefferson City and current chairman of the House Committee on Government Oversight and Accountability, said Tuesday afternoon the program appears to be a failure.
His pledge for the research came on the eve of Gov. Jay Nixon’s reconvening his Bi-Partisan Tax Credit Review Commission today to update the report they issued in 2010.
