Missouri Legislature passes incentives bill to try to win Boeing 777X production
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Legislature on Friday passed and sent the governor a bill offering Boeing incentives of up to $1.7 billion over 23 years to produce its planned 777X commercial airliner in the state, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The newspaper added that St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley had called a special meeting of the County Council on Monday night to approve a resolution of support for a local Boeing incentives package. No amount has been set for that possible package yet.
