SB 189 - This act modifies provisions of the Missouri Quality Jobs Act to allow projects located within dormant manufacturing plant zones to receive benefits under the program. A project located within a dormant manufacturing plant zone will be capable of receiving benefits as a small and expanding business project if it creates at least ten jobs with an average wage for the new payroll equal to or in excess of eighty percent of the county average wage. The wage requirements for eligibility to receive benefits as a "technology business project" or "high impact project" are also modified to allow dormant manufacturing zone projects to receive benefits if the payroll for the new jobs created equals or exceeds eighty percent of the county average wage.
