As introduced, HB 1288 would reauthorize and expand various tax credits in the state of Missouri.

The bill would remove the expiration of June 30, 2020 from the tax credit for donations to maternity homes and the expiration date of December 31, 2019 from the tax credit for donations to pregnancy resource centers (crisis pregnancy centers).

Unless reauthorized, the provisions regarding pregnancy resource centers would sunset on December 31, six years after the effective date.

The bill would also increase the size of the tax credit to pregnancy resource centers from $2.5 million to $3.5 million a year.


CPCs have come under increased scrutiny over the last several years, as investigations have revealed that centers across the country have provided inaccurate information and neglected to follow proper medical protocols. (Source.)
