CVSC supported this bill and it did not pass.

H.5037 directs the Department of Commerce to consider quality of life and balance the use and protection of our natural resources before they incentivize businesses and industries to relocate to our state by prohibiting the use of taxpayer money to entice a company to locate here if that company has a history of permit violations or environmental crimes as well as requiring new or unproven industries to have appropriate financial assurances in place before any taxpayer funded incentives are offered.
