3. Governor Announces Economic Development Bill
Governor Deval Patrick yesterday signed, "An Act Relative to Infrastructure Investment, Enhanced Competitiveness and Economic Growth in the Commonwealth." The legislation will increase economic development and create jobs in the Commonwealth's key sectors of innovation and infrastructure.
“Jobs are our top priority, and creating the right environment for job growth means improving our infrastructure, preparing our workers, and encouraging industrial and commercial innovation,” said Governor Patrick. “That’s why Massachusetts is recovering faster than the nation, and why this bill matters.”
The legislation also sets the weekend of August 11-12 as a sales tax holiday to increase business for the Commonwealth’s retailers. For those two days, the sales tax is exempted from most items, but the holiday does not include restaurant meals, tobacco and single items that cost more than $2,500.
