Artur Davis details economic plan in Tuscaloosa

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Congressman Artur Davis' campaign for governor focused on jobs in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday. He detailed his statewide economic development plan during a campaign stop in Tuscaloosa. It includes tax credits for businesses that hire people for above average wages.

Davis also calls for expanded lending opportunities for small businesses and helping current industries expand through incentives.

"Government doesn't create jobs, businesses do. But they need government to be on their side in terms of the tax code. There needs to be government on their side in terms of rewarding innovation and this plan consistently talks about that," said Davis.

The announcement was one of several campaign stops in west Alabama.
