Huntington, IN, US

Editor's note: The Wall Street Journal is reporting, citing sources, that Indiana officials have agreed to give the parent company of Carrier Corp. $7 million worth of tax breaks over 10 years to help keep about 1,000 jobs in the state. The company now has a plan to invest about $16 million to keep operations in the state, the Journal reports, including a furnace plant in Indianapolis it previously planned to close in favor of a move to Mexico, the sources say. The Journal reports the company still plans to move about 600 other jobs from the plant to Mexico, and another 700 from a plant it is closing in Huntington. The Washington Post reported yesterday that the tax break will come from the Indiana Economic Development Corp., a state agency, according to a Carrier board member. President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who is still serving as Indiana’s governor, are expected to announce the deal later today. Trump's team has not confirmed any details of the deal. - Rebecca

Carrier Corporation

Editor's note: The AP notes that details on the agreement between President-elect Donald Trump and Carrier remain unclear. The heating and air conditioning company was set to close its plant in Indianapolis and move manufacturing to Mexico. Federal officials tell AP that the deal spares about 800 union workers out of the 1,400 workers that were set to be laid off. Trump and Carrier have not outlined what incentives or compromises were made to change the company's mind. During the presidential campaign, Trump threatened tariffs on companies that moved to Mexico, and AP reports Carrier's parent company owns Pratt & Whitney, which has U.S. military contracts. - Stephanie
