Washington’s Gov. Gregoire signed several bills into law designed to help small businesses. The two primary laws include a new health care insurance subsidy program and a tax credit worth potentially $10 million to $12 million on the soda-pop syrup used by restaurants. The soda-pop tax break was only one of roughly $54 million in tax incentives or cuts the Legislature approved for various interest groups ranging from aerospace companies to aluminum smelters and farms.
