• NC tried to lure Boeing with hundreds of millions in incentives

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Channel 9 requested government documents that outline how much North Carolina offered Boeing in an attempt to get the company to build a new plant here.

    According to those documents, the state tried to entice Boeing to bring its 777X jet plant to Charlotte with $632.2 million in incentives.

    The state also offered about $650.8 million in incentives if Boeing built the plant in Greensboro.

    The highest offer presented by the state was to have the plant built in Kinston -- with $683.4 million in incentives.

    Those incentives included specialized training at community colleges, the potential construction of a training center and several other tax breaks.

    Boeing has since decided to go ahead and build its new plant in the Seattle area.
