Boeing expansion in South Carolina
A state lawmaker from Oconee says he wants more information. At this point, however, District One Representative Bill Whitmire is inclined to vote yes this week to an economic development infrastructure bill to cover a phase two expansion by the Boeing plant in North Charleston. The bill, which already has passed in the Senate, is being fast-tracked because two thousand new jobs and one billion in private investment are being offered. “Personally, I believe Boeing will compare favorably with what’s called the multiplier effect that BMW has had on South Carolina,” Whitmire said.
