***MULTIMEDIA PACKAGE*** Burzichelli on Impact of Christie Administration Failed Policies on the FY 2016 BudgetAssembly Appropriations Committee Chairman John J. Burzichelli (D-Gloucester) issued a multimedia package Wednesday, at the conclusion of the Assembly's review of the proposed fiscal year 2016 Budget, in which he levels criticism at the Christie administration's lack of long-term fiscal planning and continued reliance on economic policies that have little proven efficacy in helping New Jersey improve its recover from the Great Recession at a rate comparable to neighboring states.
Mazzeo & Burzichelli Bill to Increase Business Participation in State Sign Service Programs Goes to the Governor(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Vince Mazzeo and John Burzichelli to remove certain out-of-date requirements for participation in state sign programs was approved by the full Senate on Monday. The bill passed both houses and now heads to the Governor's desk.
The bill (A-3669) would prohibit eligibility for sign service programs from being conditioned on whether a facility has a public telephone or free drinking water available. This would apply to the sign programs implemented by the Department of Transportation, New Jersey Turnpike Authority and South Jersey Transportation Authority.
"This legislation cuts red tape for businesses and brings our sign programs into the 21st century," said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). "With this bill, we help all businesses, especially those making new investments in our region. Growing industries like craft breweries and distilleries here in Atlantic County and statewide will now be able to take part in the state's service programs and promote their business. It's a win-win for consumers and local business."
