Money in your pocket or money in state government’s pocket to pay for schools, roads and other services?

Money in your pocket or money in state government’s pocket to pay for schools, roads and other services? Democrats say that’s what the debate is about when it comes to Governor Nixon’s veto of a Republican tax reform bill.

That plan would have phased out part of the state’s income and business tax, replacing it with some increased sales taxes.

On “Missouri Viewpoints”, Democratic State Senator Scott Sifton explains why he doesn’t like the shift away from income taxes.

Sifton Veto-1                                     trt: 14                                    oc: Medicaid costs

The annual veto session happens in September. Republicans are expected to attempt an override of the tax bill veto.
