Business incentive bill passes; ends filibuster

(AP) Missouri senators have passed a business incentive bill backed by Gov. Mike Parson following a more than 27-hour filibuster.

Senators voted 25-8 on Tuesday to send the measure to Parson’s desk.

The bill would authorize up to $50 million of tax credits for General Motors to expand an assembly plant at Wentzville.

It also would authorize a new college scholarship for adults and give state economic development officials the ability to give immediate tax breaks to other businesses that agree to add jobs and expand their facilities.
