Open Tonitte til 8 i of thee Flea a by Max Sturm a i in the last edition of this column we had some questions in How come Arkansas could attract More industries these Days than Missouri with both having state Laws that permit municipalities to vote Revenue bends for he construction of buildings for leasing to induces. Duane Michie Hayti Industrial development chairman had some answers. A right now a he said a Missouri has one of the Best Industrial development state agencies in the nation.
