Missouri Gov. Mike Parson will be making several stops in the St. Louis region Thursday.
At 9 a.m., the governor will head to the Cortex District to sign a bill that provides $15 million in grant funding to make pharmaceuticals and semiconductor microchips in the area. St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones will join Parson in celebrating the grant approval.
Later, Parson will then visit the Wentzville Behavioral Health Crisis Center.
Quote from Mayor Tishaura Jones from Twitter:
St. Louis is called the Silicon Prairie for a reason, and today’s $15 million grant will help solidify our city as a leader in bioscience & advanced manufacturing. I joined @GovParsonMO and fellow regional leaders at
@CortexSTL this morning to celebrate this important investment.
