Update:  H.R. 1740 is to strengthen the provisions of MGL chapter 23D in section 6 as it relates to section 4(a), not to extend this language to all businesses in Massachusetts under all circumstances.  This would limit the “right of first refusal” restriction to those businesses which received tax credits/incentives for keeping jobs in Massachusetts.  Thank you to member Jeremy Poock for his diligence in this regard and Representative Paul Mark for his timely response.
