Senate Republican Budget Officer Anthony Bucco introduced legislation to help address exactly why employers leave New Jersey, in the aftermath of the Mercedes-Benz’s impending move of 1,000 jobs to Georgia.
“Legislators and governors hear anecdotes as to why employers leave our state, and as a small business owner, I have considered leaving this state due to the high costs and oppressive regulations,” said Bucco (R-Morris). “But too often companies leave this state or shut their doors or lay people off without a full and detailed understanding as to all the reasons why. This legislation will provide state leaders with the answers necessary to correct the actual root causes of job loss here and, in turn, make New Jersey more attractive to job creators.”
