SB 763; A4 - Expand Economic Incentive Programs

This amendment would have increased the allowable amount of taxpayer-funded corporate welfare to be handed out in the Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) program. The amendment would also have created the Job Catalyst Fund, yet another “economic incentive” program that awards taxpayer dollars to specific businesses. Civitas believes the conservative position is for government to treat all businesses equally and to not provide taxpayer handouts or special tax treatment to specific, politically-connected businesses or industries. The Conservative Vote is No.
