ST. LOUIS (AP) _ The nation's largest company that manages pharmacy benefits is opening a new office building in St. Louis County as part of an expansion expected to add 1,500 jobs over the next few years.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Monday helped Express Scripts mark the $56 million expansion project. The company received nearly $7 million in tax incentives from the state, and could be eligible for additional tax credits of nearly $25 million if all 1,500 jobs are created.

The project add 11,500 square feet to the company's technology and innovation center. Express Scripts now occupies more than one million square feet in an area near the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus.

The company, founded in 1986, provides pharmacy benefits for more than 85 million Americans.

    7 million in tax incentives,, so we in MO can pay more sales tax . amazing as to how much money flows out of Jeff, yet every guv body is broke. this tax increase coming next week to a vote needs to be defeated in such a way that every one in guv gets the message, especially nixon who signs a bill he claims to be opposed to.
