Governor Jay Nixon says Texas Governor Rick Perry crossed the line when he voiced an ad that is airing across Missouri. The ad tries to lure businesses to Texas by slamming Missouri's tax policy. Governor Nixon does not appreciate the message and says it demonstrates that Perry does not have a good understanding of the reality confronting leaders.

"Anybody who thinks that the future is going to be made by state-against-state pettiness doesn't understand that there are factories opening up in China, that there are kids in school in France, that we have to compete to win the future," said Nixon.

Perry is running the ads ahead of a trip to the Show-me-State in which he will rally Missouri lawmakers to override Governor Nixon's veto of a bill that would have lowered some taxes and raised other.

Nixon had recommendations on what the governor do in Missouri. "When he comes, he [should] go to a store and buy something because he'll notice it's cheaper in Missouri because we have a lower sales tax rate," said Nixon. "And when he's here, maybe he ought to look at buying a house, because our property taxes are way lower than they are in Texas. And he won't have any trouble getting somebody who can help him add up the numbers, because our kids' ACT scores are way higher than they are in Texas."

Lawmakers meet on September 11 to decide which bills they will try to override.
