Anne Zerr’s bill would reduce the historic preservation tax credit’s cap to $90 million from $140 million. That program helps refurbish older buildings and has been used extensively throughout St. Louis.</p><p>The bill would also gradually reduce the cap on the tax credit for low-income housing to $110 million from $140 million. That credit provides an incentive for developers to build housing for the working poor, elderly and disabled.</p> Thu, 06 Mar 2014 22:57:56 +0000 Jason Rosenbaum 34231 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Missouri House Sends Tax Credit Overhaul To Senate; Would Cut Preservation, Housing Missouri House to vote on jobs bill next week http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/missouri-house-vote-jobs-bill-next-week <p><a href="http://house.mo.gov/">Missouri House</a> leaders have&nbsp;confirmed they&rsquo;re returning to Jefferson City next week to resume the special legislative session -- but their return doesn&rsquo;t mean that there&rsquo;s been any breakthrough on an economic development deal.</p><p>The special session ground to a halt last week because House and<a href="http://www.senate.mo.gov/"> Senate </a>leaders could not agree on whether to place expiration dates, or sunsets, on historic preservation and low-income housing tax credits, or on how much oversight <a href="http://gov.mo.gov/">Governor Jay Nixon&rsquo;s </a>(D) Economic Development department should have over some incentives.
