The New Jersey Legislature has had a somewhat unique task this year in developing the 2022-2023 State Budget, and when all is said and done, it will have an impact on nearly every individual, business and organization in the state. There are billions of dollars of surplus in the State’s treasury this year, and business leaders and legislators are actively seeking opportunities to use some of it to reduce the burden on businesses and organizations of all sizes.
There are also a number of legislative initiatives working their way through the Senate and Assembly that could provide some assistance to the business community by way of environmental regulation changes, workforce development and training assistance as well as tax relief. All of this combined could offer a much needed boost to the business community and the state economy as a whole. If any of this seems like it could help you in some way, be proactive and contact your state representative and let them know.
