Description

The Atlanta Business Chronicle discovered Georgia's legislature giving away corporate tax breaks to companies that agreed to create jobs and build new facilities within state borders. The paper had to sue the state to get access to the information. The pressure forced the Governor to help change state law to give the public access to the tax records. Jordan then proved that one of the companies did not create as many jobs as it promised prior to getting the tax break.
