Local And Job Development Incentives Pass S.C. General Assembly
Friday, November 23, 2018
In overriding a veto by Governor Henry McMaster, the South Carolina General Assembly voted to expand economic development credits aimed at recruiting professional services and office jobs, as well as support our local agriculture industry. This bill was the South Carolina Economic Developer’s Association’s (SCEDA) number one priority legislation for the 2017-2018 Legislative Session.
“These important enhancements will add another arrow into our economic developers’ quiver when it comes to attracting professional jobs to South Carolina and supporting our local agriculture industry,” said Mark Warner, SCEDA president and vice president of business development and marketing at Davis & Floyd. “We are grateful for the action of our South Carolina lawmakers and economic development professionals across our state who answered our call to action.”
SCEDA members worked over the past two years to promote these changes. Targeting the agriculture industry and high-paying professional jobs will benefit people across South Carolina, from urban to rural areas.
