Goodness, such a mystery! Who are these "particular companies that have been granted a selective tax break/subsidy deal under previous state business tax regimes"? It almost seems like actually naming the affected companies might take fewer words than describing their tax situation does. Then again, I'm not a legislator, so what do I know.
I do hope that whoever these companies are, they've been vetted better than was Obama/Biden favorite, Solyndra, the California solar panel company that promised to create 4000 jobs, thus received a half-billion dollar loan guarantee from the taxpayers (carefully designed to be UNsecured) then promply declared bankrupcy, so that taxpayers were stuck repaying the loan. It is starting to appear that "green" energy isn't a prudent investment--though as long as it's just taxpayers investing, who really cares?
I suppose we'll find out who these companies are when they, sadly, close their doors and declare bankruptcy, huh?
