Missouri lawmakers hear plans to end Kansas tax break war

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 15:53 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers appear ready to embrace a proposed truce with Kansas in a tax-break battle for businesses.
 
Missouri House and Senate committees each heard testimony Wednesday on legislation that would call for a moratorium on tax incentives for businesses in the Kansas City region relocating from one side of the state line to another.
 
The legislation would apply to businesses moving between the Missouri counties of Jackson, Clay, Platte and Cass and the Kansas counties of Wyandotte, Johnson, Douglas and Miami.
 
Missouri's bill says its moratorium will kick in as soon as Kansas takes a similar action. No one testified against it Wednesday.
 
A study by the Hall Family Foundation found that Kansas and Missouri have waived $217 million of taxes through two programs to shuffle businesses in recent years.

MoDOT warns drivers of blowing snow, low temperatures today

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 14:12 Published in Local News

Crews on both sides of the river continue their work to clear the roads.

 

MoDOT is asking any motorists who hit the roads today, to use extra caution. Conditions have improved most on major highways, but most state routes are still covered or partly covered with snow or ice. MoDOT officials say crews will continue to work on a 24-hour schedule. Drivers are being warned that blowing snow and dropping temperatures will cause conditions to deteriorate this evening.

 

The lower the temperature drops, the less effective salt becomes. Crews will be adding abrasive materials--such as sand--to the salt, to provide drivers increased traction.

UPDATE: Power back on after Soulard gas explosion

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 13:52 Published in Local News

   The power is back on for Soulard residents who live near a building that exploded Wednesday afternoon at Shenandoah and Menard.  

   An AT&T subcontractor was installing fiber optic cable for the Stars Design Group when they hit a gas main. Employees smelled gas just after 1 p.m. and called the fire department. About a dozen people were evacuated minutes before a series of blasts.  

   Both gas and electric were turned off for 22 nearby buildings while gas crews worked to cap the line.  Fire officials brought in a warming bus for people who were evacuated.

   The lights are now back on in the neighborhood.  And about midnight, Laclede Gas crews were going door-to-door, relighting pilot lights as gas service was restored.  

   There were no reports of injuries.
