State House  and Senate Overrides Governor Nixon’s Veto to Pass SB 509

JEFFERSON CITY – Americans for Prosperity – Missouri today praised the state legislature for overriding Governor Nixon’s veto to pass SB 509, which provides the first income tax reduction Missourian’s have seen in 92 years as well as a tax cut for small business owners, the engine of job creation.

“The state legislators who voted to override Governor Nixon’s veto and pass SB 509 have won an important victory for the Missouri taxpayer and small business owners,” explained Patrick Werner, State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “This Tax cut is an important first step towards limited government and away from the tax and spend policies of the current administration and previous state legislatures. We hope this is the start of serious budget reform including constitutional limits on future state spending so we can free Missouri’s economy.”
