The L.A. Times reports that state lawmakers failed to pass a package of incentives to lure the Tesla battery “”gigaplant” to the state. That’s potentially bad news for Stockton, previously identified as the leading California candidate.
The story quotes one unnamed “policymaker” as saying, “The administration gave up about a week ago.”
It is believed that Stockton city officials are making an extreme effort to accommodate the plant, which would bring 6,500 jobs, and a change in city fortunes. But they are keeping their actions in strict secrecy.
