Current Bill Summary

SB 1360 - This act establishes the "Missouri Defense and Energy Independence Act".

For all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2025, this act authorizes a qualified company to claim a tax credit not to exceed $6 million for qualified conversion costs incurred by the qualified company for converting such company to produce chemicals, metals, gases, or rare earth minerals that will be used for projects designed to decrease or eliminate reliance on foreign-produced materials.

Tax credits authorized by the act shall be issued to a qualified company in four equal annual installments. Tax credits shall not be refundable or carried forward, and shall not be transferred, sold, or assigned.

This act also establishes the "Grants for Independence from Foreign Influence Fund", which shall consist of at least $10 million in appropriated moneys. The fund shall be used by the Department of Economic Development to provide grants to qualified companies in an amount not to exceed $500,000. Grant funds shall be used solely for qualified conversion costs incurred before the completion of the conversion of the qualified company.

This act shall sunset on August 28, 2030, unless reauthorized by the General Assembly.

This act is identical to HB 1834 (2024) and to a provision in HCS/HB 1935 (2024).
