Governor Greitens announced FY19 Budget Proposal

Yesterday, Governor Eric Greitens outlined his FY19 budget proposal at a press conference in the Governor’s Office. This proposal included $25 Million in new funding to establish a new Jobs and Infrastructure Fund that will assist local governments with matching funds to ensure infrastructure is in place to attract, retain and grow Missouri businesses and create additional jobs for hard working Missourians.

“As Congress focuses on infrastructure at the federal level, the effort announced today by Governor Greitens will really help Missouri’s ability to attract quality employers and to help our existing employers,” said Ray McCarty, President/CEO of Associated Industries of Missouri. “We applaud this effort to use our state funds for vital infrastructure improvements that are always near the top of the list for companies looking to locate or expand,” he said.
