SB 326; 2R - Increase JDIG Program Funding

Increases by $5 million the amount available in the biennium for the Job Development Investment Grant fund (JDIG). JDIG is a state government program that gives away taxpayer money to targeted businesses meeting certain thresholds of investment amounts and promised additional jobs. Civitas believes the conservative position is that the government forcibly taking taxpayer money from some to hand it to politically-chosen corporations is wrong. The conservative vote is no.
