JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Mike Parson says he wants to enact a law that would enable the state to collect millions of dollars of new tax revenues from online sales. Parson told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he wants the Legislature to take advantage of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that gives states the ability to collect sales taxes from out-of-state retailers who sell items to their residents. It will be part of his agenda for the legislative session starting in January.
