JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri could award additional tax credits for donations to pregnancy resource centers under legislation passed by the Missouri House.

The bill that is pending in the Senate would raise the current annual tax credit cap by $500,000, bringing the total amount up to $2.5 million per year.

People can currently receive a tax credit worth half of their donation to 57 pregnancy resource centers located throughout the state. Missouri is expected to waive $1.5 million in revenue during the current budget year as a result of the credit.

The House passed the bill on a 113-36 vote before lawmakers recessed for this week's break.

Missouri has not hit the current $2 million cap on the tax credit during the past three budget years.
