JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to incentives for Boeing to assemble to a new passenger airplane in the St. Louis area.

The House voted 127-20-2 Friday for the legislation that authorizes as much as $1.7 billion of incentives over more than two decades for Boeing to produce the 777X jetliner. The legislation passed the Senate on Wednesday by a 23-8 vote.

Now it's up to Boeing to decide whether Missouri's offer is good enough.

Boeing sought proposals from more than a dozen locations after a machinists union in Washington state rejected a proposed contract last month.

Gov. Jay Nixon called a special session in order to increase the amount of incentives Missouri could offer. Missouri's proposed incentives are linked to the number of jobs created.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - New details about Missouri's bid for a Boeing assembly plant show the state could offer more than $1.7 billion of incentives over two decades.

Gov. Jay Nixon's office released details about the incentives Tuesday to The Associated Press as lawmakers prepared to hear testimony about it in a special session.

Nixon also said a new agreement among St. Louis labor councils could help Missouri compete for the Boeing 777X airplane.

Boeing solicited proposals to build its next-generation commercial aircraft after union members in Washington state rejected a proposed contract that sought concessions.

Missouri's potential package of incentives is based on the jobs created. If Boeing adds 2,000 jobs, the incentives could total up to $435 million by 2040. If Boeing adds 8,000 jobs, the incentives could total $1.74 billion.
