In what is typically a very divided legislative hall, Missouri lawmakers submitted on Dec. 6, a overwhelmingly bipartisan proposal to offer aerospace company Boeing approximately $1.7 billion in incentives over the next 20 years if they were to locate their planned 777x plant in the state.

A contending proposal is also in the works in Kansas. Wichita Eagle reporter Molly McMillin joins us to help make sense of these proposals and what their impact could be.
