The Missouri Catholic Conference this year will be seeking to re-establish a tax credit that has expired that helps pregnancy resource centers. The legislature failed to reauthorize the credit last year. Most legislators supported the pregnancy resource credit but it was held hostage as battles raged to reform all of Missouri’s tax credits.
This year may offer a better chance to restore the credit. State Representative Eric Burlison (R-Springfield), and State Senator Bob Dixon (R-Springfield), have both filed bills (HB 87 and SB 20) to restore a number of benevolent tax credits, including the one for pregnancy resource centers. Stay tuned for more.
