Regarding the one-eighth sales tax for Missouri Conservation, I would recommend Mr. Hill review the criteria for the continuance of this tax. It is a tax approved by the voters, not the legislature.
Speaking for myself and I am sure loads of outdoor people, this small tax is very well utilized compared to a lot of others. In layman terms we are getting a lot of bang for the buck.
If they need the aircraft I am sure they can justify to you why.
Just ask, don't judge from your recliner.
