    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri House committee has approved a tax-credit reduction plan, but it stops short of the significant cuts passed by the Senate.
    The legislation endorsed Thursday by a House panel would impose a $135 million annual cap on tax credits for historic renovation projects. That could essentially allow the program to continue as is, since it issued a total of $134 million of tax credits last year.
    A Senate bill passed last week would impose a $50 million annual cap on historic tax credits.
    The House and Senate versions also are far apart on how to limit tax credits for the development of low-income housing.
    House Economic Development Committee Chairwoman Anne Zerr praised both programs. But some senators contend the programs are busting the budget.
