BILL TO CREATE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TASK FORCE ADVANCES

vandrew_colorLegislation that would further examine what we can do to promote economic growth moved through a key committee. The bill sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew went through the Senate Economic Growth Committee. The measure would create a task force to study and recommend ways to improve economic conditions in the 1st Legislative District, one of the most economically depressed regions in New Jersey. The 11-member task force will bring together freeholders, community college presidents, economic development experts and state officials – the Executive Director of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, or a designee – to drill down on some of the most pressing issues facing residents in the 1st Legislative District.
