Kansas City, MO –

  • The Missouri Senate has approved a scaled back tax incentive plan to present to Canadian airplane builder Bombardier. The Senate version offers up to $240 million in tax credits over an 8-year period to Bombardier if it builds a plant in Kansas City and pays above average wages. The bill now goes back to the House.
  • The Kansas City, Missouri city council approved a contract for red-light cameras, starting with 12 intersections. Drivers' rear license plates will be photographed, and violators will be fined $100, classed as a non-moving offense.
  • The Grandview man sentenced to two life terms for shooting a Missouri Highway trooper was sentenced to an additional ten years today for fire-bomb posession.
