State Senator Joe Kyrillos (R- Monmouth) today supported Senate President Steve Sweeney’s (D- Gloucester) efforts to renew focus on shared services and regionalization among municipal governments while calling for immediate passage of “tool kit” reforms.

“I have long been a proponent, as has the Senate President, of having municipalities realize economies of scale by sharing services where it makes sense,” said Senator Kyrillos. “New Jersey’s property tax problem has many causes, one being the duplication of government functions from schools to snow plows among smaller municipalities.

Legislation proposed by Governor Christie and sponsored by Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) and Senator Fred Madden (D-Gloucester) to expand financial assistance grants for current and prospective New Jersey employers has advanced in the Assembly. “An Act concerning the Business Retention and Relocation Assistance Grant Program” (BRRAG), S-2370, would broaden the availability of state financial assistance for those employers who wish to expand operations in or relocate to the State of New Jersey. The bill’s Assembly companions (A-3389, A-3391) were heard today in that chamber’s Commerce and Economic Development Committee.

“With New Jersey’s unemployment rate at 9.4%, state government must use all tools at its disposal to create and retain jobs,” said Senator Kyrillos. “I am proud to join Governor Christie’s efforts to make New Jersey more affordable for job creators by sponsoring this bi-partisan piece of legislation with Senator Madden. Our proposal increases the tax credits available to employers who wish to invest in our great state and expands eligibility for the program. By reducing the corporate and insurance tax burden on job creators, we can change the business climate in New Jersey and put people back to work. Far too many of our friends and neighbors are in search of meaningful employment, and we must do everything possible to motivate job opportunities and the state’s economy.”
