• Springfield R-XII school board comes out against unaffordable tax bill that would give majority of benefits to top 7 percent of taxpayers
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Gov. Jay Nixon today raised questions about the legislature’s priorities in passing an unaffordable tax bill that would allow profitable LLCs and corporate partnerships to take advantage of generous tax breaks, while giving the average working family a tax cut of only $32 a year. Citing Senate Bill 509’s harmful impact on public education, the Springfield R-XII Board of Education last week passed a resolution calling on the legislature to support Gov. Nixon’s expected veto of the bill.
