BERNIE, Mo. (KFVS) - Governor Mike Parson was in Bernie on Monday morning, October 31.

The governor signed Senate Bills 3 and 5 and House Bill 3 at the Martin Rice Company.

These bills are the agriculture tax credits and income tax legislation passed by lawmakers during a special session.

Gov. Parson urged the passing of the bills and officially signed them on Oct. 5.

SB 3 & 5 reduces Missourians’ income tax liability by making several changes to income tax laws in the state, including reducing the top individual income tax rate from 5.2 to 4.95 percent.

HB 3 extends and creates several agriculture tax credit programs intended to help develop key areas of Missouri’s agricultural industry.

Parson also ceremonially signed bills this week in Springfield, Sedalia and Jefferson City.
