CLAYTON, Mo (KMOX)-Despite the imminent failure of the Missouri Legislature to pass China Hub legislation during its soon to conclude special session, the St. Louis County Executive isn’t ready to throw in the towel.

Charlie Dooley says the Chinese still need a midwest freight hub and there’s still no place better for it than St. Louis and Lambert Airport, “We’re going to move this thing forward, step by step. We’re not going to give up on this. It’s too important for our metropolitan area. It’s too important for jobs and opportunity.”

Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer plans to adjourn the special session this week.

Dooley says if there’s no last-minute deal he’ll push for new incentives in the next legislative session which begins in January.
