Greenwald Hails ‘Real, Bipartisan Progress’ in Job-Growth Legislation

Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) released the following statement Monday upon the Assembly’s concurrence with the conditional veto of A-3213, the Economic Opportunity Act of 2014, Part 3:

“Today’s vote continues the critical bipartisan work we began last year with the Economic Opportunity Act. By streamlining and reforming a complex system of incentives, we have strengthened New Jersey’s ability to attract job growth and economic development. While we have much more work to do, this bill represents real, bipartisan progress.

“This legislation also tackles an important facet of our state’s overall economic health–the struggling economy of Atlantic City. By expanding eligibility for economic growth incentives to key projects, our work today is an important step toward rejuvenating Atlantic City’s economy.”
