NJBIA's Annual Public Policy Forum - Planning Prosperity REGISTER NOW

The New Jersey Business Coalition, a collection of more than 100 leading business and nonprofit groups, submitted a letter to New Jersey’s Legislature this week urging to consider several priorities, including a pause on any further legislation that imposes additional expenses on business in the state.

“The COVID-19 pandemic and state-mandated shutdown have devastated New Jersey’s business community,” the letter read. “Businesses face severe revenue losses, due to shutdowns and reduced operating capacity, and increased operating expenses due to implementation of public safety measures. A handful of programs have helped businesses weather these difficult times.”

The coalition urged that a particular focus be made on structural reforms, unemployment insurance, business liability protections, financial assistance for businesses, workforce issues, and a reopening framework.
