Sen. Jim Lembke
House and Senate Republicans continue to be divided on many issues in the budget, including the passage of a $70 million tax amnesty program.
“We couldn’t stand by and let that happen if it could be stopped. Luckily for those people, the Senate has come forward and restored the funding.”
The Senate ended a two day gridlock and passed the state’s $24 billion budget early Wednesday morning.
The Senate adjourned near midnight after eight hours without a compromise on Missouri’s $24 billion budget.
Rep. Jay Barnes, said the legislation serves the purpose of trying to prevent the failure of future economic development projects.
