Prieto: Amazon HQ2 Bill is ‘About Jobs, Jobs & More Jobs’

(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen) released the following statement Friday after an Assembly committee advanced legislation (A-5340) he’s sponsored to help attract an Amazon headquarters to New Jersey:

“Bringing permanent, good-paying jobs and significant economic development into New Jersey is a top priority.
“This bill is unique, but Amazon offers a rare opportunity to bring a major, growing corporation into our state that will employ thousands of our residents for decades to come and bring expansive tangential economic benefits.
“This is about jobs, jobs and more jobs, and even more jobs on top of those.”
