Gusciora & Muoio Introduce Legislative Compromise to Provide Lifeline to Urban Cities in the Wake of Christie’s UEZ Bill VetoAssembly Democrats Reed Gusciora and Elizabeth Maher Muoio (both D-Mercer/Hunterdon) have introduced a legislative compromise to provide a critical lifeline to urban cities in the wake of Gov. Christie's conditional veto of previous legislation (A-2576) they sponsored that would have extended the duration of Urban Enterprise Zones (UEZ) for an additional ten years.
The lawmakers noted that Gov. Christie's conditional veto excised critical passages of the legislation that would have extended the UEZ designation and replaced it with a directive requiring the Commissioner of Community Affairs to conduct a study into potential alternatives to the UEZ program.
