Amazon appears to have won what South Carolina newspaper, The State, calls a "stunning reversal" in its battle to get a sales tax exemption in return for building a distribution center in Lexington County. Yesterday, the South Carolina House passed a measure 97-20 in favor of a five year sales tax exemption, reversing last month's 71-47 vote against - which resulted in Amazon cancelling its building plans. Apparently, Amazon has pledged to create at least 2000 full time jobs and invest at least $125 million (up from 1250 jobs and $90 million previously).
