Inslee issues jobs package

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee has unveiled a $120 million jobs package Wednesday that would provide tax breaks for new companies in certain targeted fields, create 500 new slots in aerospace training programs and assemble a commission to ensure that the state’s colleges and universities are turning out students with math- and science-based skills relevant to the needs of the economy.

At a Wednesday news conference, Inslee, a Democrat, also said he expected that the state’s expansion of Medicaid using federal dollars — approval of which is under consideration in the Legislature — would create over 10,000 jobs.

Rodney Tom, a Medina Democrat who leads the Republican-dominated state Senate majority, said his caucus is broadly supportive of Inslee’s job-creation goals, and said he looked forward to seeing more details from the governor.
