Gov. Inslee signing Boeing incentive bills

Associated Press
SEATTLE — The Museum of Flight at Boeing Field was selected for a ceremony Monday for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee to sign legislation to help keep production of Boeing’s new 777X in Washington. The legislation was passed Saturday at a special session in Olympia. It extends tax incentives for Boeing to 2040 — a break worth $9 billion. The legislation also directs millions of dollars for training programs for aerospace workers. Lawmakers are still considering a $10 billion transportation package that would benefit Boeing. Boeing also says it needs an eight-year contract with union members or the company will look to build the new model 777 elsewhere. Members of the Machinists union vote Wednesday.
