TRENTON, N.J. – Doing business in New Jersey will soon become much easier. Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco and Assemblywoman Nancy F. Munoz’s bill creating a business advisory council unanimously passed the Assembly Commerce and Economic Development committee today by a 10 to 0 vote.
“New Jersey’s over-bearing regulations continue to frustrate business owners,” said Bucco (R-Morris), the Assembly Republican Whip. “The Red Tape Review Commission has done a great job of reducing regulations, and this council will help businesses navigate them.”
“We are always looking for ways to improve New Jersey’s business climate,” said Munoz (R-Union), the Republican deputy conference leader. “This council indicates to the business community that New Jersey is committed to its success, and will help them be successful in any way we can.”
The 12-member advisory council will be part of the Business Action Center, advising the center and the state Economic Development Authority on how to improve the New Jersey’s business climate. Members will vary from small to large businesses in industries across the state – with at least 3 each from North, Central and South Jersey – and meet four times per year.
