ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed a bill Monday to help keep the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in St. Louis along with thousands of high-paying jobs.

The bill increases the amount of tax increment financing available.

NGA has outgrown its current location in south St. Louis.

It is currently considering whether to locate a new one-billion-dollar western headquarters and more than 3,000 jobs in Missouri or Illinois.

A decision is expected next year.
