Bill Number: 
HCS HB 346
Bill Purpose: 
Modifies the MO Works Program to allow qualification of some military projects
Date of Vote:

My Vote: 
No
Explanation: 

HCS HB 346, introduced by Representative Steve Lynch (Republican - District 122) modifies the "Missouri Works" program to allow the qualification of certain military projects within the incentive system. 

This bill is likely well intentioned, but it makes no sense to me.  Why would we incentivize companies to work on military projects (such as bases, etc) in Missouri?  The details and location of such projects is determined by the Federal government, and would happen with or without any incentives.  Also, I am not a fan of the "Missouri Works" program at all, and this bill expands it.

Incidentally, I was only one of only 8 people to vote no on this.
