Sen. Cannella Issues Statement on New Hiring Tax Credit Pilot Program in Merced

Thursday, April 24, 2014

State Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today issued the following statement following announcement by Governor Brown that Merced will be one of three new pilot programs for a hiring tax credit that resulted from last year’s SB 90, coauthored by Cannella:

“It is important that as California emerges from the recession, we provide assistance to attract businesses to our more depressed regions. By creating this pilot project through GO-Biz in Merced, there will be greater incentive for businesses to take advantage of the benefits of relocating or expanding in areas such as Castle Air Force Base.”

Maps of the areas covered by the new pilot programs can be found on the Franchise Tax Board's website at:
