SPRINGFIELD –(ENEWSPF)--November 24, 2015. The Illinois Department of Commerce today announced three companies have been approved to receive EDGE tax credits for committing to create a total of 87 net new jobs and $27 million in capital investments in Illinois. All three companies considered moving operations to another state but chose to stay and grow in Illinois as a result of the state’s high quality workforce and competitive incentive packages.
Under Governor Rauner’s recent decision to reinstate EDGE tax credit approvals, approved companies can begin working to fulfill the hiring and investment goals under the EDGE agreement . . .
