Gov. Jay Nixon today signed House Bill 184 and House Bill 196 which implement Missouri Works, comprehensive strategy to support economic growth and create career opportunities for Missourians.
“From Day One, my top priorities have been creating jobs and moving our economy forward. Streamlining and strengthening our economic development tools will help employers in the Show-Me State create more jobs and ensure that our workforce has the skills they need to compete and win in a global economy,” Gov. Nixon said. “I am pleased that the General Assembly answered my call to address this issue and worked in a bipartisan fashion to get this legislation to my desk. Missouri Works will help all employers, from our largest industries to the family-owned businesses along Main Street, succeed, hire and grow.”
