|Machine Shop No. 2 will be transformed into a Bass Pro Shop|
|State Senator Lisa Boscola enthusiastically thanked Governor Corbett|
|Corbett expects to see 4,000 permanent and 3,000 construction jobs|
Although Corbett spoke of the steel beams that weighed 550 lbs that are currently inside the Empire State Building, he made clear that he's more interested in Bethlehem's future. He called the CRIZ the "beginning of a voyage", and one that brings 3,000 construction jobs and 4,000 permanent jobs, along with $1 billion in investment. He called the CRIZ the "spark to unleash new development."
He also made clear that he'll be watching closely, and won't decide on additional CRIZ designations until he sees how things work in Bethlehem.
