      Tax changes atop 2013 agenda in Missouri Senate

      JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Changes in Missouri's tax code will be near the top of the agenda for Republicans in the state Senate during the 2013 session.

      Sen. Tom Dempsey, of St. Charles, is expected to be elected as presiding officer when the Senate convenes in January. He says majority party Republicans want to act quickly on legislation to provide "income tax relief." The specifics remain to be finalized but could include income tax cuts for individuals, small businesses or corporations.
