<-PREVIOUS SLIDE - SLIDE 14 OF 24 - NEXT SLIDE->

While Kansas sprang into action, Missouri's constitution forces us to fix our mistakes over a much longer period of time. And given the current political climate, it's tough to take bigger bites each year.

However, Progress was made in the 2018 legislative session.

Predictably, the legislature started with a series of massive tax cut proposals
$1-$6 Billion each.

With the help of advocates across the state, eventually we were able to include some good stuff in bills that passed:

The EITC - what we're calling the `State Work Credit' now, almost passed before it was stripped from the bill at the last minute by Sen. Eigel.
Streamlined was ready to pass and then SCOTUS indicated they would make a ruling that would help guide the states on this issue and so the legislature tabled it until the upcoming year.
