They often fall under the radar, but compacts are becoming a top tool for managing interstate issues.

Comment: Illinois should be leading the charge to form one to cease state relocation incentives to draw in employers. It’s a zero sum game for the nation as a whole, but states will continue to do it unless others agree to stop.

Why would Indiana stop poaching Illinois businesses? All indiana needs to do is show a business their property tax bill, workman’s comp, the employees property tax bill…heck, why does Indiana need to provide an incentive? Shut the lights out in Illinois and re-open in Indiana. Everything would be paid for in 6 months.
