Back to Work NJ: Leading the Way to Create Jobs (Dec. '10 Constituent Newsletter)
By Senator Jim Beach, Assemblyman Lou Greenwald & Assemblywoman Pam Lampitt
Recently, Democrats in the Legislature announced “Back to Work NJ”—a legislative package to create jobs, help small businesses and families, and stimulate New Jersey’s economy. Assemblyman Greenwald has been at the forefront of leadership on this issue, sponsoring many of these bills and chairing multiple hearings to consider this package of job-creation and economic development bills.
Astoundingly, some have argued that working to create jobs and help businesses grow should be on the backburner in Trenton. With unemployment over 9% in New Jersey, we could not disagree more. Now is the time to take bold, smart action to create jobs and put New Jerseyans back to work, and that is exactly what what we are doing – with 30 bills ready to be voted on by the full Assembly and Senate.
Each of us has sponsored major measures in this 30-bill job-creation package, which have already been approved by committees in the Assembly and the Senate. Most of these initiatives have received bipartisan support and cooperation. We call on Governor Christie to support them. In the upcoming weeks, we will provide you with detailed updates on these proposals to create jobs. Working together, we can create jobs and jump-start New Jersey’s economy.
