Gov. Jan Brewer calls for new business incentives

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she wants lawmakers to pass a package of business incentives and has called on lawmakers to eliminate a tax on electricity used by manufacturers.

Brewer set out the goals during her annual State of the State address at Monday’s opening day of the Legislature.

The Republican governor is touting the state’s comeback from the Great Recession and moves she championed to cut business taxes and attract new companies to Arizona.

Among the cuts lawmakers have approved in previous years are lower taxes on business property and equipment, corporate income and capital gains.

She says the incentives and the new Arizona Commerce Authority have helped create 175,000 new jobs and $4.3 billion in new capital investment in recent years.
