exceeds the greater of the following:

industry sector as the applicant's business in the county in
which the applicant's business is located, the average
compensation paid during that same period to all employees
working in that NAICS industry sector in that county
multiplied by one hundred five percent (105%).
(B) If there is more than one (1) business in the same NAICS
industry sector as the applicant's business in Indiana, the

impact to the state, as certified by the budget agency using the
best available data.
(8) The applicant's business and project are economically sound
and will benefit the people of Indiana by increasing or

economy of Indiana.

relocation of jobs to another site outside Indiana have committed
local incentives with respect to the retention of jobs in an amount
determined by the corporation. For purposes of this subdivision,
local incentives include, but are not limited to, cash grants, tax
abatements, infrastructure improvements, investment in facility
rehabilitation, construction, and training investments.
