Reynolds-Jackson, Verrelli Introduce Bill to Create "Trenton Capital City Aid Program"

Bill Would Provide Annual State Expenditure to Help Offset Local Taxes

Home to multiple tax-exempt properties owned and operated by the State, Trenton is in a unique position as the State capital.

The Trenton Capital City Aid, once given, helped alleviate the burden on residents and was an integral part of helping to balance the city budget year after year."
