Nancy King supports innovative public investment to strengthen our economy and create jobs. As Delegate, she voted to increase small business loans and to increase small business assistance. She is a strong proponent of tax credits to create jobs in the biotechnology field. She is also a strong supporter of common sense investments in "green" jobs, including innovative legislation to grow the "green collar" jobs in Maryland.
In 2010, Nancy worked with Governor O'Malley to pass a $5,000 tax credit, available to an employer for each unemployed Marylander the employer hires. This emergency legislation has put hundreds of Marylanders back to work as the state emerges from a deep national recession.
