**MEDIA ADVISORY** GREENSTEIN/DeANGELO TO UNVEIL SEVEN-BILL BUSINESS EXPANSION AND JOBS PLAN

Central Jersey Lawmakers to Announce Legislative Initiative to Provide Assistance to New Jersey Small Businesses, Help Spur Job Creation

Central Jersey Assembly Members Linda R. Greenstein (D-Plainsboro) and Wayne P. DeAngelo (D-Hamilton) will hold a Tuesday afternoon State House press conference to unveil their seven-bill Business Expansion and Jobs Plan aimed at helping small businesses weather the current economic climate. Components of the plan would offer grants and tax incentives; attract consumers to local business districts; and cut bureaucratic red-tape that can deter small businesses from growing in New Jersey.

The bills were derived from ideas and concepts from the 14th District Small Business Roundtable Greenstein and DeAngelo created one year ago to work with local business leaders to find ways that the state can support businesses like theirs. During the past year, the assembly members have considered numerous ideas brought to them by local business leaders and sought to draft the legislative package.
