Rick Perry to Tout Texas in Missouri


Texas Governor Rick Perry will travel to Missouri next week to tout the Lone Star State.

Perry will head to the Show-Me state on Thursday, August 29th, to discuss the low taxes featured by Texas, according to a press release from his office.

A 30-second television ad began running on Tuesday, August 20th in several Missouri markets, “showcasing the opportunities and freedom available to families and businesses thanks to Texas’ smart, conservative fiscal policies,” according to Perry’s office.

Perry will discuss Texas at meetings with employers and business leaders, speak at a luncheon at the Missouri Chamber of Commerce, and deliver another speech in Chesterfield.

The $106,400 television advertisement and Perry’s trip are paid for by TexasOne, and Perry’s office says that no state dollars will be used for his travel, accommodations, or the ad buy.

TexasOne is a public-private partnership to market Texas across the world as a prime business destination.

A website highlighting Texas’ business climate, also now features a special section targeting Missouri businesses and employers.

Texas does not have a personal income tax. Missouri has a personal income tax ranging from 1.5 to 6 percent.
