Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens says he is revolving his gubernatorial agenda around the basis of “common sense.” Individuals in the higher education system, however, disagree.
Greitens spoke at Signature Packing and Paper in Jackson at 4 p.m. on Monday at a public appearance to discuss his tax-relief plan he says will put working families first.
He said, under the Greitens administration, Missouri has the lowest unemployment rate in 17 years, has accounted for every dollar in the Missouri budget and is working toward the reduction of 33,000 government regulations. He said his tax plan will cut taxes for 97 percent of Missouri taxpayers. Under the plan, taxes on Missouri businesses will be the second lowest in the country.
