JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has endorsed the creation of several new tax breaks intended to lure high-tech businesses and foreign trade to the state.
House members gave initial approval Wednesday to a bill authorizing $60 million of tax credits for international exporters over the next eight years.
They also gave initial approval to bills creating tax credits for investors in high-tech startup businesses and authorizing state and local sales tax breaks for computer data centers.
The votes came a week after the Senate passed a broader overhaul of Missouri's tax credits.
The Senate measure would authorize those same new incentives while also reducing the tax credits available for renovating historic buildings and developing low-income housing. House leaders plan to consider reductions to tax credits separately at a later time.
