An $8.1 billion plan to remake a big chunk of north St. Louis continues to face stiff opposition, four years after it was first made public.
More than 200 people, most of them opposed to the Northside Regeneration Initiative, packed the St. Louis city Tax Increment Financing Commission meeting today urging its members to spike the project completely.
Legal questions surround the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing who was captured on Friday.
What is the role of the public safety exception as it relates to Miranda rights? Were civil rights violated as a result of the lockdown? Should Tsarnaev be tried as an enemy combatant as some Republican legislators have suggested?
The questions surrounding the surviving suspect of the Boston Marathon bombing were discussed by a panel of legal experts, as part of our monthly legal roundtable discussion.
After over 3 years of litigation, developer Paul McKee’s controversial Northside Regeneration Project is being allowed to proceed. On Tuesday the Missouri Supreme Court reversed a lower court decision blocking McKee’s use of so-called "Tax Increment Financing," (TIF) for the development.
St. Louis Developer Paul McKee tells a Mo. House committee about his NorthSide Regeneration Project. McKee wants lawmakers to pass a bill that would extend the life of the state's Distressed Areas Land Assemblage Tax Credit program until Aug. 28th, 2019.
The controversial incentives are set to expire August 28th, but if passed, House Bill 423 would push the expiration date to August 28th, 2019, giving McKee six more years to get his NorthSide Regeneration Project off the ground. He says the extra time will enable his group to put together large parcels that can be used to lure another Mastercard or another Express Scripts to St. Louis.
