The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Georgia governor Nathan Deal has signed off on House Bill 958, a $200 million bundle of tax breaks and incentives for various kinds of business, including food banks.

The package features a $25 million tax break for developers.

This is Georgia's second attempt at a developer-friendly tax package; in 2008 it offered a 20% tax break via its Entertainment Industry Investment Act.

The tax package comes slightly too late for CCP, which laid off a significant number of Atlanta staff as part of its cancellation of World of Darkness.

Thanks, Joystiq.
