With this serious heat wave grabbing most of the public’s attention, it’s possible that you may have missed the announcement about the special session. A big part of the excitement surrounding this announcement is, for some, the Aerotropolis tax credit.

The usual soundbites were heard and dutifully reported. But as a native Missourian, I’m going to have to be shown why this tax credit will work, unlike other tax credits of the past.

Dave Nicklaus of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch hit the nail on the head. In “Tax credit proposal bold, but may not reinvigorate Missouri,” he captures the essence of the discussion.

It’s a good read, and I highly recommend it. We will be hearing about and discussing this issue a lot more as the special session develops.
