Assembly Concurs with Christie's Changes to NJ Tax Incentive Bill

From the Burlington County Times, September 10, 2013:

A long-awaited bill overhauling the state’s business incentives took another step toward becoming law Monday when the Assembly approved changes handed down hours earlier by Gov. Chris Christie.

Liberal and conservative groups also were critical, albeit for different reasons.

“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,” said Gordon MacInness, president of the liberal-leaning think tank New Jersey Policy Perspective. “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.”
