Governor Jay Nixon (D) has reconvened his tax credit review commission to again examine which incentives need to be eliminated or further capped.

In 2010 the same commission recommended sun-setting 28 tax credit programs and capping 33 others. At the time the commission said the move would save the state $220 million.  Former Republican State Senator Chuck Gross of St. Charles again chairs the commission.
