TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANAGROOS FIGHT FOR GOV. JAY MISSOURI TAX BILL VETO!!!



A statement from the UMKC SGA Prez regarding the upcoming veto session fight . . .

Welcome Back & Call To Action

Money line . . .
SGA’s mission is to stimulate the intellectual, political, cultural, and social growth of all students and in the spirit of keeping you in the loop, there is one thing we must let you know about.

House Bill 253 (HB253) passed the Missouri Legislature last session and was sent to Governor Jay Nixon's desk for approval. Governor Nixon vetoed the bill and it has been sent back to the legislature.HB253 seeks to cut taxes for the wealthiest of Missourian’s Tax Payers, and slashes more than $800million from revenue.

Higher Education is unprotected by law and one of the most vulnerable places to lose if the HB 253 Veto is overridden.

If the Veto is overridden, the University has ONE option: to raise tuition for all four University of Missouri campuses. UM System President Tim Wolfe has announced that passage of this bill will necessitate anywhere from an 8 to 16 percent hike in tuition for students. This is simply unacceptable; it is time that Missouri Politicians quit playing games with the education and future of Missouri’s workforce

You can help! We ask that you call your State Representative and ask them to stand with students across Missouri and hold the Governor’s Veto.

Your President,

Benjamin Campero
