HB253 Will Be a Disaster for Missouri

Here's the skinny on Progress Missouri's contest to support Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of HB253, an “ill-conceived, fiscally irresponsible” tax plan that will require devastating cuts to Missouri’s schools, communities and families if it becomes law.  

The rules of the contest are simple: 

  • Any House member who votes to override the Governor’s veto of HB253 will be entered into a lottery.  
  • The 'winner' selected from this lottery will receive an aerial banner flown over a high school or college football game in his or her home district, advertising the legislator’s short-sighted votes against local schools. 
  • If the House does not take a vote to override the Governor’s veto during the September Veto Session, Progress Missouri will use funds raised for this project to thank Representatives who have opposed HB253 from the beginning. 

Game on!
