On Tuesday, voters in St. Louis and Kansas City will have their first change to determine the future of their cities’ 1 percent earnings taxes, which are imposed on the wages of everyone who lives or works in the cities.
It’s on the ballot following statewide approval last November of Proposition A.
The lead-up to the vote has been very different in the two cities.
Today, we have two reports.
Maria Altman will look at how quiet the campaign has been in St. Louis.
But first, Maria Carter of KCUR reports that things have been much more heated in Kansas City.
