Heaney discusses Tesla on ‘Pressroom

Jim Heaney, appearing on The Capital Pressroom, talks about Investigative Post's recent reporting on the struggling Tesla plant in South Buffalo and questionable tax subsidies for two fast food restaurants in Niagara Falls.

Jim Heaney spoke this week with David Lombardo on The Capital Pressroom about Investigative Post’s recent reporting on the Tesla plant in South Buffalo and tax subsidies issued to fast-food restaurants in Niagara Falls. Both stories were reported by J. Dale Shoemaker.

The Tesla story documented the failure of that $1 billion project to live up to its potential. Dale’s IDA reporting has prompted legislation intended to address what critics say is an abuse of the IDA law.

Capitol Pressroom is broadcast weekdays on about 20 NPR stations across upstate. It airs on WBFO at 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. on Saturday.
