Issue Position: Economy
Kenny Hulshof understands the plight of small business owners in Missouri, because he is one. That personal experience has instilled in him a commitment to the pro-jobs and anti-tax policies that have garnered him praise from small business and farm groups.
Kenny believes a business-friendly climate is essential in order to attract the high-quality jobs of the 21st century. He is the only candidate who will defend Republican-enacted lawsuit abuse reforms that have freed Missouri's doctors and small business owners from the threat of frivolous lawsuits, and he has pledged to hold the line on job killing taxes. Kenny will collaborate with local officials to recruit quality employers to the state, and he will work with state colleges and universities to ensure that new graduates have an opportunity to utilize their skills right here in Missouri.
As governor, Kenny will conduct a comprehensive review of the state's tax credit system and take corrective actions whenever necessary to ensure that tax dollars are being used for their intended purpose.
