Meet at House Hearing Room 6 in the lower level of the Capitol in Jefferson City.

 

We’ll have information packets ready for you to distribute, and will set up meetings with key legislators.  You don’t have to be an expert, just a supporter of historic tax credits.

 

Over 43,000 jobs and $7 billion in investment have been created through our state’s Historic Preservation Tax Credit. The Credit has been helping to revitalize neighborhoods in all corners of Missouri since 1998.

We cannot afford to cut this critically important economic development tool.
