  • The Governor's DOR has REFUSED to implement a retroactive amended tax filing bill passed by the legislature under the MO Constitution provision cited above. The Governor's argument about this issue is fallacious constitutionally and ignores the fact that the US House of Representatives has said they will not pass the Marketplace Fairness Act which the Governor supports.

    It's also fallacious that ANY bond rating agency has said they will downgrade Missouri's bond rating if HB253 is overriden. Moody's didn't even mention HB253 as a problem. The ALL said the biggest problem affecting the bond rating is Missouri's stagnant recovery lagging the rest of the nation. HB253 would stimulate the state's economy.
