The Governor wants the Republican-led Legislature to pass a law keeping companies operating in Missouri, but based elsewhere, from avoiding corporate income taxes. Republicans say the Governor and Democrats are proposing a big tax hike on businesses a that will be bad. The Republican-led House has passed a bill backed by business groups.

Despite the disagreements about whether either side will ever compromise the talk will go on in the Senate.
