Consensus Seems Unlikely in Special Session
JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri's special legislative session looks increasingly likely to end without passage of a bill revamping Missouri's business incentives.
Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer said Wednesday night that only "a very slim amount of hope" remains for passing a bill, and lawmakers most likely will adjourn the special session on Friday.
Mayer's comments came after another round of negotiations between House and Senate leaders broke down without agreement on a bill to scale back some of Missouri's existing tax credits and create new incentives for businesses.
Earlier Wednesday, House leaders declared they had reached a compromise with Gov. Jay Nixon on the legislation. But Senate leaders said they were not part of that deal and remained adamantly opposed to certain parts of the House bill.
