MO Lt. Governor Outlines New Pro-Business Agenda
Parson wants to see more retirees move to the Show-Me State as well as wanting to roll back what he describes as "frivolous regulations" and that Missouri's regulatory environment "has gotten out of hand." Parson says he wants to ensure that Missouri is a competitive place to start and maintain a business.

CDFA Releases 2017 Policy Agenda
CDFA is proud to release its 2017 Policy Agenda. Our agenda outlines numerous recommendations to some of the nation's most difficult development finance issues, and we hope that Congress and the Administration will use our recommendations as a roadmap to improvements in these areas. To read The Bond Buyer's overview, click here.

MO Economic Development and Infrastructure Investment Act Proposed
The proposed piece of legislation looks to revitalize Missouri's aging utility infrastructure by modernizing the grid. To support the costs of bringing Missouri's infrastructure up to the new technology standards, the bill includes a provision which would reform regulations on rate adjustment mechanisms.

Three-Year Tax Incentive Legal Battle Ends Between MO City and County
Boone County's three-year battle to prevent the City of Columbia from proposing any new tax increment financing districts will end after a state appeals court on Tuesday reversed a previous circuit court ruling and ordered the lawsuit to be dismissed.

A Winning Strategy to Realize Maximum Incentive Benefits
Whether negotiations are handled in-house or outsourced, making sure that required reporting is completed is paramount for the project to be successful. Over half of negotiated economic incentives are never realized. How does this happen? What can you do to ensure success?
