A multi-million dollar tax break proposal that could bring Boeing to Missouri moves one step closer to being finalized.

After just five hours in session, the Missouri Senate passed the Boeing tax break proposal yesterday.

Northwest Missouri Senator Brad Lager opposed the bill saying this type of public policy is not healthy for the long term economic health of Missouri.

He says broad-based tax relief is the right answer.

The bill passed with a 23 to 8 vote and heads to a House committee Thursday.
