40,000 new jobs this year

Gov. Chris Gregoire’s description of work to attract clean technology to the state and Forbes Magazine’s high ranking for Washington as a place to do business gets applause from Democrats. Republicans seem unimpressed.

She’s calling for 40,000 new jobs this year by attracting $2 billion in capital investments. She also wants a new employee tax credit for each small business that hires a new full-tgime position.

She also wants to streamline permitting in a “One Fronts Door program to cut through red tape.

She also wants changes to the Rural County Tax Credit program to make it easier to hire more workers.
