AUDIO SOUND BITE: Former State Budget Director Agrees with Nixon, Says Tax Cuts Won’t Help Missouri’s Economy

Supporters of a Republican-led plan to reduce taxes in Missouri say that would improve the state’s economy. Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the idea but Republicans may try to override that decision next week.

Former State Budget Director Jim Moody, on “Missouri Viewpoints”, wants the veto upheld. He disagrees with the claim supporters are making about job creation.

House Bill 253 calls for a gradual decrease in personal and business taxes over several years. Nixon calls the plan a risky experiment that could harm funding for education and social services.
