JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee has advanced legislation seeking to end to a tax-break battle for businesses with Kansas.
The bill endorsed Monday by a special House business committee would affect four counties on each side of the Missouri-Kansas line in the Kansas City area.
Missouri would stop offering tax breaks tailored for businesses to move from those four Kansas counties into one of the four Missouri counties - but only if Kansas enacts a similar moratorium through legislation or an executive order.
The proposal comes after the states have waived hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenues competing with each other for businesses in the Kansas City area.
The counties at issue are Jackson, Clay, Platte and Cass in Missouri, and Wyandotte, Johnson, Douglas and Miami in Kansas.

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin is among eight senators urging more drugstore chains to follow the example of CVS Caremark by ending the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products.
CVS Caremark Corp. said last week it will phase out tobacco in its 7,600 stores nationwide as it shifts toward being more of a health care provider.
The Illinois Democrat and other senators sent letters Monday to chief executives of Walgreen, Rite Aid and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores. The senators urged them to stop selling tobacco products and promote stop-smoking efforts.
The senators, all Democrats, are Tom Harkin of Iowa, Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Barbara Boxer of California, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee has endorsed a measure, known as "right to work," that would bar labor contracts from requiring that all employees pay union fees.
The House Workforce Development and Workforce Safety Committee also voted on Monday to advance legislation that would change how unions can collect fees.
It would require unions to get annual written authorization to collect fees that are automatically deducted from a worker's paycheck.
If they clear the Legislature, both measures would go on a statewide ballot. The Republican sponsors say sending the bills to voters would get around a likely veto by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
"Right to work" is a top priority of Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka.
