Good Jobs First was recognized by State Tax Notes as one of two “organizations of the year” in 2015 for its victory in winning the Governmental Accounting Standards Board’s Statement No. 77 requiring states and localities report how much revenue they lose to corporate tax breaks for economic development. “Good Jobs First took the lead in pushing for the rules to be strengthened and approved. It rallied its supporters and like-minded organizations, coordinating a massive letter-writing campaign in support of the new standards,” the weekly of record on state tax policy reported.Good Jobs First is a national resource center that works with community, labor, and environmental organizations; economic development officials; and public policymakers to promote corporate and government accountability in economic development.
