St. Louis Public Radio
Missouri House Speaker Pro Tem Elijah Haahr, a Springfield Republican, has introduced a major proposal to cut tax rates, end some tax credits and change how other taxes are calculated.

Ever since Congress passed major changes to U.S. tax policy, Missouri leaders have been mulling their own changes to the state tax code that might leave your tax bill looking very different next year. We talk with House Speaker Pro Tem Elijah Haahr, a Republican representative from Springfield, about how his 429-page plan can call itself "revenue-neutral."
