[Q] What is the actual effect of Mayorkas' letter to Senator Leahy stating that indirect/induced jobs outside the RC area can count for a RC project?


In reality, not that much, because there needs to be some reasonable basis to go outside the regional center geographic area and count indirect/induced jobs effect. In other words, there needs to be some persuasive reason or evidence, and the geographic areas where a majority of inputs occur should determine the geographic area whose multipliers should be used.
