A Game Plan to Keeping and Creating Jobs in N.J.

A Game Plan to Keeping and Creating Jobs in N.J.
BY JEREMY ROSEN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The Senate Economic Growth Committee passed legislation sponsored by Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) to create the “New Jersey Business Advisory Council” to recommend job-creating ideas to the state Economic Development Authority, the legislature and the governor.

S-2709 is part of the Senate Republican’s fourth phase of a new six-phase jobs bill package, which will not cost taxpayers extra money and should quickly garner bipartisan support and passage. Senator Beck unveiled today five other bills in the fourth phase: “Improving New Jersey’s Economic Development Policies & Programs.”

“The diverse Business Advisory Council will provide unique insights about New Jersey’s business climate and what employers need to locate, grow and expand here,” Beck said. “This legislation along with other bills in our new jobs package will provide state leaders with a complete picture and the answers necessary to correct the actual root causes of job loss and, in turn, make New Jersey more attractive to job creators who will hire more people in our top-notch workforce. This package also helps spotlight New Jersey’s businesses in the global economy by promoting their products and giving them more opportunities to grow and expand.”
