Clerical error delays vote on Boeing incentives

A clerical error has delayed a final vote on Missouri legislation offering incentives for Boeing to locate an airplane assembly plant in St. Louis.

The House had appeared ready to vote on the bill Friday. But that was delayed while lawmakers scrambled to fix a mistake in the official version of the bill.

The printed legislation distributed to the House is missing some phrases of an amendment adopted earlier this week in the Senate.

Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey described it as a staff clerical error that can be fixed. He said the bill still could come to a vote Friday in the House.

The legislation offers as much as $1.7 billion of incentives over more than two decades for Boeing to assemble the 777X commercial airplane in Missouri.
