Gov Nixon Visits NoCo Sr Center

Governor Jay Nixon came to Maryville yesterday to discuss the recent veto of House Bill 253.

Nixon spoke to members of the community inside the Nodaway County Senior Center to explain a portion of the bill and the major sales tax increase it would cause. Nixon says the multi-million dollar tax increase is "something Missourians can't afford and don't deserve."

Since 1979, prescription drugs and co-pay costs have been exempt from sales tax, but Nixon says the passing of House Bill 253 would eliminate that exemption.

The bill was vetoed in June, however, some members of the Missouri General Assembly expressed intent to try to override Nixon's veto at the annual veto session this September.
