Nixon proposing incentives for high-tech jobs

OSAGE BEACH, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon is proposing new incentives for creating more high-tech jobs in Missouri.

Nixon was to outline part of his plan Tuesday at a conference of the Missouri Biotechnology Association at the Lake of the Ozarks.

He also was traveling to community colleges in Springfield and Moberly to announce a proposal that would direct additional dollars to colleges to expand training for high-tech, high-demand professions.

The Democratic governor and Republican legislative leaders have made job-creation programs a priority for the annual legislative session that begins Jan. 6.
