Missouri House approves funds to attract conventions

( KTRS ) The Missouri House has endorsed a bill creating a grant program to attract more conventions to the state.

Lawmakers gave initial approval Wednesday to a measure authorizing grants for large conventions that could cover up to half the operating expenses. Eligible conventions would have to draw at least half their attendees from out of state, and their grants would be tied to how many hotel rooms their attendees are expected to fill.

The fund would be capped at $3 million annually and needs another vote before it goes to the Senate.
