An amendment to Senate Bill 2922 that would have taken away a $96 million tax incentive for the proposed Gulf Coast Galleria shopping center in D'Iberville was struck by the House on Monday.

The House voted to remove the amendment that said the tax credits for the Galleria and two other shopping centers would expire by July.

The bill provides tax incentives for historic properties in Mississippi that developers hoped to use to restore the Markham Hotel and the old VA property in Gulfport and other sites.

Now the House version of the bill goes back to the Senate, which can concur or ask for a conference.

The deadline to concur on amendments is Friday.
