State housing commission votes to stop low-income credit

Posted online

The credit provides incentives for investors of low-income housing projects.

“We zeroed out this failing program, and saved tens of millions of dollars,” Greitens said in a statement. “No. More. Giveaways.”

Developers, including those in Springfield, say low-income developments would not be possible without the credits.
