SEATTLE (Reuters) – Washington state Governor Jay Inslee said on Thursday that Boeing Co’s <BA.N> decision to shift all 787 production to South Carolina requires a review of the company’s favorable tax treatment.

“The state is committed to maintaining support for those companies and workers,” Inslee, a Democrat, said by email.

“But Boeing’s decision to take the 787 to South Carolina necessitates a review of our partnership and the company’s favorable tax treatment,” Inslee said.
