If anyone cares, a bill that would limit the use of tax increment financing, as could be expected, died. All over the state vacant land in thriving areas will continue to be declared "blighted" and necessary adjoining land will test the waters of eminent domain. According to a statement made by Rep. Bob Johnson, Missouri citizens should start thinking about an initiative petition in order to combat the influence of developers. And with Missouri legislation insuring no limitations on political contributions the politicians will continue to make decisions that are self-serving. Makes me want to puke.
