Bill to exempt the Economic Stimulus Refund copied & recopied


From Rep. John Burnett's e-newsletter about how the Republicans plagiarized a bill from some local Democrats -


Quite a bit of attention has been given this week to House Bill 2178 it would exempt from Missouri tax any advance refund the Feds sent out on the Economic Stimulus program. If and when the checks come from the IRS we wouldn't have to pay Missouri tax on that windfall. Seems like a great idea.

In fact it seems that it was such a good idea when introduced first by some KC area Reps Holsman, Grill, LeVota and Talboy that it was immediately copied not once but twice. Two teams of Republicans copied it word for word and introduced it as House bills 2189 and 2208. 2189 has 25 sponsors all Republicans and 2208 has ten sponsors all Republicans.

Will be interesting to see if they follow the long standing tradition of rolling similar (in this case identical) legislation into the same bill and give the first sponsor the credit. But with 35 Republicans many of whom are running for reelection or higher office?????????
