To The Editor:

The Missouri economy is booming. Ever since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was passed last December, employment in the state has been on a steady uptick and more people have joined the labor force. As a result, employment across almost every sector has skyrocketed.

To further take advantage of these benefits, we need to ensure the tax cuts provisions are made permanent — which is why Congress is working on what they call Tax Cuts 2.0. It will guarantee that Missouri entrepreneurs and their employees will continue to reap the rewards of tax relief for years to come.

With the midterm elections coming up this November, we can’t forget what a crucial catalyst the tax cuts have been for economic growth. Hopefully, the candidates that are elected are on the same page.
