​Missouri Lawmakers Reject Brownback's 'Border War' Proposal

(Image via

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers appear uninterested in Kansas Governor Sam Brownback's proposal to end the business "border war" between the two states. Brownback last week offered to reduce his state's efforts to lure jobs away from the Missouri side of the Kansas City metropolitan area if Missouri's lawmakers would in turn weaken a law they approved in 2014 addressing the issue. The Kansas City Star reported Wednesday that some Missouri legislators say Brownback's proposal wouldn't completely stop incentives for businesses to relocate from Missouri to Kansas. A current Missouri law offers a truce in the business fight if Kansas agrees to the law's terms by August 28. Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, a Joplin Republican, says he has no desire to change the 2014 law in response to Brownback's offer.
