      Many issues left for Mo. Legislature in final week

      The issues still to be decided on are piling up for Missouri lawmakers.

      Missouri lawmakers have one week to sort out differences on top legislative priorities, including changes to tax incentives and limits on liability lawsuits for businesses.

      House and Senate Republican leaders are attempting to negotiate legislation that would scale back existing tax breaks for historic buildings and low-income housing and create new incentives for certain businesses.

      Lawmakers also are working to bridge a gap in on legislation that would replenish an insolvent fund for injured workers and prevent lawsuits over occupational diseases by covering them through the workers' compensation system.

      Some priorities already have been sent to the governor, including an income tax cut for individuals and businesses and a $25 billion operating budget.
