House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session

From: Representative Ed Neilson
To: All House members
Subject: Construction Job Tax Credit (formerly HB 1125)
To sustain job growth in the Commonwealth and to meet the ongoing demands for construction workers and tradespeople, I plan to introduce legislation which would create a construction job tax credit to award qualifying facilities a tax credit of $20,000 per full-time equivalent job that is created during the construction phase.Tax credit eligibility will be available to manufacturing or processing facilities in Pennsylvania who do the following:

· Make a private capital investment of $450 million or greater.
· Create at least 200 new jobs during the construction phase of the project.
· Make good faith efforts to recruit and employ workers from the local labor market.
· Comply with the Prevailing Wage Act for the new construction jobs created.
· Maintain the project facility operations in Pennsylvania for at least 10 years.
· Use at least 50 percent of the raw materials during construction that are sourced from Pennsylvania.

Please join me in this effort to build Pennsylvania’s economic development incentives and attract capital investment from companies willing to create and retain good paying jobs.

Introduced as HB517
