Nixon signs the Missouri Manufacturing Jobs Act, Ford Incentives in Kansas City

Gov. Jay Nixon on Thursday afternoon signed the Missouri Manufacturing Jobs Act in the Kansas City area, which has a Ford Motor Co. assembly plant that could be a key beneficiary of the bill.

Nixon signed the legislation at the site of United Auto Workers Local 249, which is near Ford’s (NYSE: F) Kansas City Assembly Plant, before a crowd of a couple hundred. Other General Assembly members attended, including bill sponsor Rep. Jerry Nolte, R-Gladstone.
