Busick Supports Property Tax Relief for Shut Down Businesses

A bill that would exempt businesses from local property taxes and licensing fees if they are shut down during a pandemic passed the Missouri House last week. State Representative Danny Busick supported it.

House Bill 1263, sponsored by Representative Chris Brown of Kansas City, passed 141-to-9. It would apply to any shutdown order that lasts at least 21 consecutive days or 45 cumulative days.
