TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDERS EXPLAIN HOW PREZ TRUMP & GOP TAX REFORM BILL COULD KILL NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT!!!
Even after a rigged vote, the new Kansas City airport is far from a done deal.
To wit . . .
THIS MORNING WE CELEBRATE AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS AND THEIR REAL WORLD EXPLANATION OF HOW THE GOP TAX REFORM BILL THWARTS NEW KC AIRPORT PLANS!!!
To be fair, the biz journal explained the story first but their words were as bland and dry as your mom's turkey.
Here's a savory and real world explanation . . .
"Congress passed the tax bill that would eliminate the "private activity bonds" the exact same bonds that were going to pay for the airport! I'm sure the US Senate will make major changes or not pass it at all but what a fun thought that the airport vote was all for naught! If this reform sticks, Kansas City would then have to go back to the ballot to pass airport revenue bonds to pay for the new terminal! Not sure that one gets the 75%!"
Let's also not forget that there is another vote underway on the final configuration of the new airport along in addition to more MOU slap-fighting ahead.
And so, the promise of a "free" airport keeps getting more complicated.
Moreover an EXPERT AND AWESOME TKC TIPSTER informs us . . . . . .
BROKEN PROMISE #1 - KANSAS CITY STILL FAILS TO EARN RANKING AMONG TOP AMAZON HQ2 DESTINATIONS DESPITE THE NEW AIRPORT VOTE!!!
Already the eco-devo promises have crashed and burned in the struggle to provide corporate welfare to the top patrons of local politics . . . OR it seems that free money has become slightly harder to attain in Kansas City no matter how much local voters like the smile of the pitch man.
