Business leaders are confident they will get some form of help.
Glenn Hamer, president of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and
Industry, said, "We are very bullish that over the next session, and
probably earlier than later, there is going to be an opportunity to get a
landmark job package . . . to the governor's desk for her signature."
Details of a prospective job bill have yet to emerge, but it is
expected to be part of an economic-development package that will offer
business-tax reductions and other incentives to encourage companies to
remain here and expand, and to make the state more competitive in luring
firms from other states or countries.
