Tip Line: Blunt to Veto Economic Development Bill

July 3rd, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

The Missouri Political News Service has learned that Governor Matt Blunt will veto HB 327 which provided increased economic development aide to new and emerging Missouri companies. The bill passed overwhelmingly in both the House and the Senate.

MOPNS has also learned that several of HB 327’s opponents wrote Governor Blunt letters – at his office’s request – asking him to veto the legislation. They included several professional sports franchises (The Chiefs and Royals were specifically mentioned) who didn’t like the ticket scalping provision in the bill. They also included several county commissioners who presumably did not like the impact the bill would have on their counties. The Missouri Political News Service will continue to investigate.

    Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying
    to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!
