Attempt to Override Veto of Missouri Bill Containing SST Provisions Fails

On June 5, 2013, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed a bill passed by the Legislation that, among other provisions, would have required the Missouri Department of Revenue to enter into the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement. On September 11, 2013, the House of Representatives, voting to override the veto, fell short of the two-thirds majority vote needed for an override. As a result, the override was not passed onto the Senate for consideration and the SST provisions failed. (H.B. 253, failed to pass over veto, September 11, 2013)
