JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — For Missouri Governor Jay Nixon's $23-billion state budget to work, analysts say he's going to need to find new sources of revenue.
Analysts say the reason for new funds is because the budget doesn't call for new taxes.
Experts say Missouri lawmakers need to make an amnesty period for deliquent tax payers to fork over what they owe, raise casino fees and entice people to buy more lottery tickets, just to name a few ideas for bringing in more revenue.
Nixon is confident that his budget will win approval.
