"Missouri First" Initiative

"Missouri First" Initiative

Workers on the Boeing F-15 fighter jet line take a break to listen to Missouri Governor Jay Nixon unveil the "Missouri First" initiative in St. Louis on January 8, 2010. Nixon says the plan will allow Missouri to retool its economic incentive programs to provide an additional incentive to companies that already are located and employ workers in the state. Nixon belives this is the fastest and most reliable way to create jobs and jumpstart the stateÕs economy. UPI/Bill Greenblatt
