A special session to debate a $700 million permanent tax cut in Missouri has been delayed. Last week, Governor Mike Parson called for the General Assembly to return to the Capitol on Tuesday, September 6. The decision to delay came on Wednesday, after a meeting between Senate and House leadership. The special session will now begin September 12, the same day the legislature was set to return to the Capitol for the annual veto session. Governor Parson wants lawmakers to cut the top income tax rate from 5.3% to 4.8% and increase the standard deduction by $2,000 for single filers and $4,000 for couples. He also proposed extending an agriculture incentives package.
