Recipients of the 2004 Preservation awards expressed the importance of Missouri's historic tax credit. Matt Johnson shows how some lawmakers are concerned about the program.
More than one hundred people attended the ceremony. The awards recognized the accomplishments of those who preserve historic buildings.
Democratic senator Wayne Goode says the tax credit is important, but poses challenges to the state.
"Tax credits are important, they do good things...there is no question about that, but the other side of it is, though...that they play havoc with the budget because basically those expenditures are out of control."
Members of both chambers expressed support for the credit.
From the state Capitol, I'm Matt Johnson.
