Mo. Senate Panel Backs Funding for First Steps

JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — A Missouri Senate panel recently endorsed a new funding source for a program that serves children with developmentally disabilities.

A Senate health committee amended a bill Monday to create a $55 million state fund from general revenues to be used for services to people with disabilities and low-income seniors.

The bill is intended to ensure there is no drop in funding for the First Steps program for preschoolers with disabilities, nor for several other initiatives.

Last week, the Legislature voted to fund First Steps and those other initiatives with revenues from the repeal of a tax break for low-income seniors and people with disabilities who live in rental housing. But Gov. Jay Nixon has said he is likely to veto that tax-credit repeal if it is not part of a broad-based tax credit overhaul.
