The AARP, Independence School District and mental health organization Re-discover have joined more than 40 others to form a coalition to quash the movement to override Gov. Nixon's veto of the GOP House Bill 253 tax cuts.
Representatives of the three organizations held a news conference at the AARP offices on Ward Parkway Monday.
Superintendent Dale Herl said the tax cut would likely cost Independence schools $5.8 million while saving middle class families very little. Herl said a family of four with an income of $48,000 would only end up with a $6 per year tax cut.
