​​WACO - Allergan is up for a record amount of economic development incentives to expand its Waco plant, but local officials said they didn’t hesitate to make the offer.

Waco City Council signed off on a tax deal unprecedented in size and length for this community—worth $13 million over 20 years for the $177.6 million plant expansion.

McLennan County commissioners in June will consider a similar deal worth $8.1 million over 20 years.

For both entities, the tax grants represent about two-thirds of the new tax revenue coming from the expansion.
