The Missouri Growth Association (MGA) is uniquely positioned as an advocate for an industry that impacts nearly every sector of Missouri’s economy. As a result, the MGA is not only committed to advancing good public policy for our industry, it is committed to being a practical resource to those making policy decisions affecting the overall business climate in Missouri.
Missouri must be a “solution state” that strives to improve administrative transparency and consistency, establishing the perception that our state is “open for business.” The MGA knows competitiveness and economic strength of the State of Missouri will be hampered by the elimination of critical tax credit and economic development tools but also recognizes the need for a fiscally responsible effort to simplify and modernize those existing programs in a manner which enhanced their efficiency, efficacy, and return to the taxpayers.
In 2016 the MGA will focus legislative efforts on the strengthening of the Missouri business climate, not only through the efforts of the commercial real estate industry, but across all sectors of potential growth. We will support efforts to foster new investment and job creation as well as the infrastructure needed to support this growth.
