Boeing: Biggest state subsidy in U.S. history

• blog.seattlepi.com
 Gov. Jay Inslee signed the tax breaks into law Monday at the Museum of Flight.
 
“This is the biggest tax subsidy in U.S. history,” said Greg LeRoy, executive director of Good Jobs First, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit which tracks so called “Megadeals” in which states offer sweeteners to major corporations.
 
"Nothing is near this deal:  The fact it took place in days is breathtaking,” LeRoy added. “This deal happens in the state that already has the most regressive tax code in the nation.”

By coincidence, LeRoy was in Seattle on the day Inslee signed the subsidy.  He spoke to a small Seattle lunch on Monday, and is appearing tonight at Seattle Town Hall.
