JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has indicated that he's likely to veto legislation that would cut Missouri income taxes for businesses and individuals.
Nixon said Friday that he has "serious concerns" about the income cut passed a day earlier by the Legislature. He called it fiscally irresponsible and said it could jeopardize funding for higher education, prisons and other government services.
The tax cut was a priority of the Republican-led Legislature and is meant to counteract recent income tax reductions in Kansas.
The Democratic governor estimated that it could eventually drain more than $800 million annually from state revenues.
The measure would essentially cut the income tax in half for businesses and reduce the top tax rate for individuals from 6 percent to 5.5 percent over the next decade.
After a break-in at one of their building sites, Habitat For Humanity reached out to the public to help recoup their losses. And one company stepped up big time.
Workers here at Home Depot on south Hanley loaded up trucks with over $13,000 dollars worth of tools and construction materials, replacing every item that Habitat for Humanity listed as stolen. The break-ins happened in the Carondelet Neighborhood earlier this week.
Kimberly McKinney, the CEO for Habitat for Humanity St. Louis, was overjoyed by the community willing to help, "This is pretty incredible. As they rolled the tools out, I got a little teary, and I don't even know how to use most of this stuff. Really, really an incredible day. The generosity fo Home Depot and the St. Louis community has been incredible."
Now thanks to those donations, a scheduled Habitat for Humanity Mother's Day build is back on track. About 60 women volunteers are coming together on Saturday to build houses for the less fortunate.
