  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

Bringing Quality Jobs to Missouri
This week we took an important step forward with our job creation efforts—we passed HB 191, legislation to expand a proven, successful program responsible for thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars of new investments in Missouri.   

The nation’s economic downturn has stymied the healthy job growth we enjoyed just a few years ago. Even in trying times, our Quality Jobs Program has successfully brought many beneficial, high-paying jobs to our state. Since its creation in 2005, the program helped create more than 22,000 jobs in more than 65 cities around the state. It has also helped our state retain nearly 2,500 jobs. As the name of the program implies, the jobs that have been created and retained are quality jobs that pay above-average wages and provide health insurance. According to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, the average wage of the jobs created by the program is in excess of $53,000 annually and the average annual wage of those retained is nearly $74,000. In total, the Quality Jobs projects created in the first three years of the program resulted in more than $2.5 billion in new investment in our state. 

The results produced by the program have been a huge success and quite impressive. The legislature increased tax credit caps in 2007 and again in 2008 to allow more projects to be approved. However, demand has still exceeded supply. The bill we approved this year removes the tax credit caps in order to approve projects all across the state. As a result, our area will not be forced to compete with others for limited dollars. Some may question removing the caps entirely. Rest assured that the program is designed to prevent abuse of this newly passed legislation. Tax credits are issued only after the projects create jobs and produce results. We also know that for every dollar we invest in the program, we get more than three dollars in return. This is a wise investment for our state.  The Quality Jobs Program has proven to be the most powerful economic development and job creation tool in Missouri.

I supported the expansion of the Quality Jobs Program because I know it’s the right thing to do for our state. It will help get our economy back on track. The program is a proven commodity and one we know will continue to create the kind of jobs that Missourians want and need. In the coming weeks we will work with the Senate to ensure this key component of our Family Recovery Plan is sent to the governor’s desk to be signed into law.
