Missouri Bill Would Give Tax Credits For Vacant Seats

missouri capitol

A bill is being considered by State Lawmakers that would give people income tax credits if they live in a legislative district that has been vacant for more than 180 days.  The legislative proposal raises questions as to whether Missourians would rather have a representative at the state Capitol or a tax refund.  Some legislators are frustrated with how long it has taken Governor Jay Nixon to call elections for vacant seats.  Under current law, governors are to call Elections “without delay” for legislative vacancies, but sets no specific deadline.  Under the proposed bill, tax credits for constituents in vacant legislative districts could range from dozens to hundreds of dollars.
