The governor this morning conditionally vetoed legislation overhauling New Jersey’s business tax subsidy programs; below is the statement of NJPP president Gordon MacInnes on the CV.

“There were plenty of ways the governor could have used his veto pen to make this reform of New Jersey’s business tax subsidy programs stronger, smarter and more effective. Instead, he used his veto power to remove one of the few positive elements of the legislation: a prevailing wage standard that would have ensured that the New Jersey tax dollars invested in these subsidy projects help a wider array of workers. What the governor has done is take a bad piece of legislation and make it even worse.”
