Governor Jay Nixon (D-MO) has traveled to Springfield to tour a small business and to talk up his Show-Me JOBS initiative, which is designed to improve the state’s employment situation and to support the growth of small business.
Nixon spoke of the need to encourage the development and growth of small businesses, saying that is the key to improving the economy and creating good-paying jobs.
Nixon signed three executive orders, this week, as part of his effort to achieve that goal. The Governor says the next step after executive orders must be passing bills to enact the entire Show Me JOBS plan. That legislation would include such things as expansion of the Quality Jobs Act and the providing of incentives for companies to provide worker training and retraining.
