Miami-Dade County commissioners approved a motion to ask Florida for 
$150,000 more in job growth incentives for Becton Dickinson and Co., 
which has already secured $1.36 million in incentives to open a Miami 

On Thursday, the commissioners voted to forgo a local match and ask the 
state to award the Franklin Lakes, N.J.-based biotechnology firm 
$150,000 to create 75 jobs and spend $21.1 million in capital 
improvements under the Brownfield Redevelopment program. Although the 
former Ivax Corp. site -- at 50 N.W. 176th St. -- that Becton Dickinson 
purchased wasn't contaminated or in a Brownfield, the commission also 
redrew the Brownfield map on Thursday to add that site, along with some 
other properties.
