Q: "The governor is a strong advocate of the new tax plan, which he says will boost the economy."

In this phrase, Is the "which" a conjunction? Is it incorrect if I rearrange it before "will"? like "he says which will boost the economy".
A: In this sentence, "which he says will boost the economy" is a relative clause. Most relative clauses begin with a special type of pronoun called a relative pronoun; in this sentence, "which" is that pronoun. The relative pronoun always comes at the beginning of the relative clause, so it would be incorrect to place it before "will" in the relative clause.
