RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina lawmakers are primed to debate what changes should be made to fiscal incentives offered companies to persuade them to build in the state.
The House Finance Committee on Tuesday is scheduled to consider an economic development bill sought by Gov. Pat McCrory’s administration.
The original measure filed last week increases the amount available to offer companies through the state’s chief incentive tool — the Job Development Investment Grant. Some lawmakers don’t like JDIG or that most of the grants are for companies going to urban areas.
The committee also is supposed to debate a Senate bill that would cut the gasoline tax immediately but set the stage for increases over time.
The bills could receive more debate in the House budget-writing committee later Tuesday.
