Pew issues a report on incentives programs in Miss., 9 other states.

The Pew Charitable Trusts issued on Friday a report about the fact that 10 more states, including Mississipppi, have put into place a system for evaluating the effectiveness of incentives programs for enticing industry to locate in the state.
The Mississippi Legislature last year passed legislation and Gov. Phil Bryant signed it into law.
Pew, a nonprofit research organization, listed in 2012 Mississippi among 29 states that it said had no systematic way to evaluate the impact of incentives.
The Mississippi Development Authority, the lead agency for promoting economic growth in the state, questioned the depth of research of the Pew report three years ago.
Look for a full report from the Mississippi Business Journal soon.
