Nixon: End Economic “Border War”

Posted by Warren Krech on November 13, 2013

(AP) – Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is calling for a moratorium on incentives to lure businesses across the Kansas-Missouri state line in the Kansas City metropolitan area. He says the two states should work together to promote the region as a whole.

In a speech Tuesday to the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, Nixon said both states have spent too much money luring companies across the state line with no real job growth. The Democrat says he’s been working with Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration to devise an agreement to end the so-called border war “once and for all.” An aide to Brownback confirms those talks have been ongoing.

Nixon’s plan calls for an immediate temporary moratorium within the Kansas City metro area, followed by efforts to persuade both states’ legislatures to approve legislation making the moratorium permanent.
