JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry is planning an upcoming trip to Missouri — and he’s injecting his opinion into that’s state’s debate over Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of an income tax cut. Perry is endorsing the effort by Republican lawmakers to override the veto.
Perry’s backing of the proposed tax cut came on the same day that a Texas marketing group began running a radio ad in Missouri criticizing Nixon’s veto and encouraging Missouri businesses to consider moving to Texas.
The Texas Republican plans to make a personal appearance Aug. 29 in Missouri to tout Texas’ business-friendly environment during events sponsored by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry and a coalition of groups backing the veto override attempt.
Perry said he also plans to meet with specific Missouri businesses as part of a Texas recruitment effort, though he declined to identify them.
