JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A task force would be charged with trying to bring the Super Bowl to Kansas City under a resolution passed by the Missouri Senate.
 
The Senate voted unanimously Thursday to send the measure to the House. If adopted there, the state Department of Economic Development would be asked to form a group to "examine what measures need to be taken" for Kansas City to host the game.
 
Resolution sponsor Sen. Paul LeVota, of Independence, says Arrowhead Stadium's $350 million renovation in 2010 would help make it an attractive venue.
 
The most recent Super Bowl was played in an outdoor stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The 2015 game will be played in Phoenix.
 
 
 

Tax Cuts Debated In Missouri Legislature

Friday, 11 April 2014 06:33 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's Republican lawmakers are advancing a pair of tax cut proposals for potential debate in the coming weeks.
 
A House committee on Thursday endorsed legislation already passed by the Senate that would cut income tax rates for individuals and some business owners. That proposal is projected by legislative researchers to reduce state revenues by $620 million annually when fully phased in.
 
Also Thursday, a Senate committee changed and endorsed a tax cut bill that previously passed the House. As revised, that plan would cut income taxes only for businesses, not individuals. Its cost is estimated at about half the amount as the other bill.
 
Committee approval of the bills means they could soon be considered by the full House and Senate.

Friday, 11 April 2014 06:18 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn and his GOP rival Bruce Rauner are scheduled to appear together for the first time in the 2014 campaign for Illinois governor.  Quinn and Rauner are to discuss education policy during a Friday meeting of the Illinois Education Association in Chicago.
 
Quinn is a Chicago Democrat seeking his second full term as governor.
Rauner is a Winnetka businessman making his first bid for public office. He defeated three other candidates to win the GOP nomination last month.
 
Education already has been a major campaign issue.
 
Quinn wants to make Illinois' temporary income tax hike permanent to invest more money in schools.
Rauner and his wife have donated millions for charter schools and teacher merit pay. He's ripped Quinn for cutting school funding in recent years.
