Sullivan and Franklin County are Taking Steps Toward Making Sullivan an Enhanced Enterprise Zone

The city of Sullivan and Franklin County are taking steps toward making Sullivan an enhanced enterprise zone. The zone will include Sullivan and surrounding communities and it is intended to create jobs and attract businesses. The plan is to provide property tax abatement for any business that hires two full time employees and covers at least 51% of their health insurance and make a $100,000 investment to either build a new facility or expand an existing structure. If these criteria are met, property taxes will be reduced 50% for ten years.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
