"It creates jobs, it makes more uses of facilities, it makes those companies probably more profitable so they can invest more in their community and build that business and the whole thing works," said Nick Matt, Chairman and CFO of FX Matt Brewery.

I smell a businessman talking.
It doesn't create jobs, it transfers jobs. Unless they sell more beer, there is no way that this idea creates jobs. Whatever job is created in New York, there will be a lost job from Pennsylvania or Jersey.
Our surrounding states could easily counter their lost jobs by accomplishing the same.
Brindisi should introduce legislature to lower the business taxes and lower the state's spending.

I'm not buying it. What else do you have to sell?
