N.J. still considering Lockheed tax break

(AP) State economic officials have delayed action on a bid by defense contractor Lockheed Martin Corp., of Bethesda, to get $107 million in New Jersey tax breaks for a facility in Camden. The New Jersey Economic Development Authority was due to consider the award at its meeting Tuesday. But EDA officials say more information is needed. The tax credits would be given out over 10 years and would be conditional on Lockheed providing a certain number of jobs in the city. Neither Lockheed nor the EDA has announced specifics on the number of jobs or what the facility would be. Lockheed already has nearly 4,000 workers at facilities in nearby Moorestown and Cherry Hill. Since last year, New Jersey has been using tax breaks aggressively to lure and keep companies.
