There is an effort under way in Missouri to try to create awareness of the competition that exists in luring new or expanding industries to the state. The most critical competition is from our neighbor Kansas, according to Save Missouri Jobs, a new organization that has launched an effort to encourage residents, businesses and leaders to push for action from Missouri government.

The organization has pointed to tax cuts that will be effective in Kansas next year. Leaders in the western section of Missouri particularly are concerned about this competition. But overall, making Kansas more attractive to business through tax cuts could be a problem for other sections of Missouri. We experienced Kansas competition here and it was tough opposition to overcome. It was a struggle. Missouri couldn’t match what Kansas offered, but the state did make a good offer, and with what the community had to offer sealed the deal for Washington and the state.
