The Washington Senate is proposing the creation or extension of nearly two dozen tax breaks – mostly for businesses. Governor Jay Inslee supports the largest of those tax incentives. But overall the Senate package unveiled Monday runs counter to the Democratic governor’s push to eliminate several tax exemptions to pay for education.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee says he stands by the decision to extend nearly $9 billion in tax breaks to Boeing in an effort to win the 777X . But in comments Thursday he made it clear he doesn’t like playing the corporate tax subsidy game.

Washington is competing with more than a dozen other locations to build the next generation Boeing wide-body airliner.

Sound familiar? Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has called a special session so lawmakers there can work on a plan to land Boeing's 777X assembly line.
