JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Lt. Gov. Mike Parson says he can’t support tax credits for a proposed ice rink complex in suburban St. Louis, even though Gov. Eric Greitens supports the plan.
Parson was the only member of state board to vote Tuesday against issuing $2 million in tax credits to help finance a $78.5 million rink and a St. Louis Blues practice facility in Maryland Heights.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Parson said a sports complex should get state tax credits while the administration is refusing to issue tax credits for low-income housing that would help senior citizens and veterans.
The Missouri Housing Development Commission voted in December to end the use of tax dollars for low-income housing.
