It's not tax abatement...it's a tax refund which is a financing tool. And there's lots more than what is listed on your link It's a rather long section of 65 ILCS 5/11-74 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs4.asp?Ac...

The TIF district does not include a Property Tax abatement. Those are features of the Enterprise Zone which this site is not a part of. Would like to know how we are going to force that one through against our rules.....not that I doubt they will do it. Take a look at the eligible TIF expenses and tell me where they are going to lie to us to classify 1.8 million of a 4 million project as TIF eligible.…

Just remember that getting taxable property there doesn't bring in any extra $$ for the city. What it does is lower property taxes for the rest of us. Obviously more $$ back for more expensive properties (i.e. same % saved across the board). By the same token the TIF district raises our taxes until such time as the TIF expires. That's because some of the tax $$ are diverted to a special…

Articles of impeachment filed against Nixon

No, it's not the 70's...State Rep. files articles against Missouri Governor

 Rep. Nick Marshall, R-Parkville, has filed articles of impeachment in the first step toward attempting to remove Gov. Jay Nixon from office.

The resolution cites Nixon's executive order from November, which allows same-sex couples married in other states to file joint state taxes. It says Nixon is "guilty of willful neglect of duty and misconduct in office" for ignoring the Constitutional amendment passed by Missouri voters in 2004. That defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. The articles say Nixon's order on tax filings violates the constitution.

Marshall posted on Facebook in November that he wanted to impeach the governor after the executive order was announced. 

Marshall is not the only Republican who has expressed the desire to impeach Nixon, a Democrat. Last month, Rep. Mike Moon, R-Ash Grove, said late last month he would file articles of impeachment because of Nixon’s failure to quickly fill vacancies in the Legislature. Moon is a co-sponsor of the measure filed by Marshall. 

Rep. T.J. Berry, R-Kearney, is also a co-sponsor. He said he thinks the governor "violated the spirit of the constitutional law."

Berry said he didn't think the impeachment would ever be voted on by the full House but that it sends a message to Nixon. "It's a communication tool," he said. "When you call someone out on the carpet, they take you more seriously."

Minority leader Rep. Jacob Hummel, D-St. Louis, called the filing "bogus" in an email statement and proof that "the crazy wing has taken over the House Republican Caucus."

Hummel said voters would see the extremism and fewer Republicans would be elected in November.

Nixon's office issued a statement calling the move a "publicity stunt" and said "the Governor will continue to focus on the issues that matter to Missouri families: quality schools for our kids, good jobs in our communities and health care for working Missourians."

House Speaker Tim Jones, R-Eureka, was noncommittal in a statement about the filing. He said he took the "allegations" about the governor repeatedly violating the Constitution seriously and that they should be discussed. 

“The allegations against the governor regarding his repeated violations of the Missouri Constitution are ones I take very seriously and that certainly merit thorough discussion and investigation," Jones said. At the same time the act of impeachment is something that should be utilized sparingly and only in response to an egregious abuse of the laws of our state. Moving forward, I expect the members of the House to take a very reasoned, deliberative approach to what will be a very serious discussion about the governor’s alleged misuse of his constitutional authority.”
