Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) Tax Credit Review Commission has released its revised list of recommendations.

Some of the original recommendations have been scaled back.  The new list calls for shrinking the cap on Historic Preservation tax credits to $90 million, instead of $75 million as proposed two years ago, and reducing the cap on Low Income Housing to $135 million instead of $80 million.  The caps for Historic Preservation and Low Income Housing are currently $140 million and $195 million, respectively.  The new report also drops the recommendation to put expiration dates on all tax credits.
