Legislation to support and strengthen Missouri’s automotive industry
July 14, 2010
By Gov. Jay Nixon
“Today, Missouri took a critical step forward for automotive manufacturing in our state. Thousands of hardworking families in every corner of Missouri depend on the automotive industry, and it’s essential that we keep those folks living, working and earning right here. With the sharper, stronger economic tools provided by this jobs bill, Missouri can make sure that our automotive industry remains vibrant for generations to come. The legislature also passed a fiscally responsible measure to modernize the pension system for future state employees and ensure the solvency of this retirement system. I applaud the legislators on both sides of the aisle and in both chambers who worked together to keep our automotive industry strong and growing.”
