Legislative Update: Sweeney Introduces Economic Initiative
Senate President Sweeney announced an economic initiative entitled “New Jersey: Investing In You”, which examines several issues facing the state with a goal of encouraging economic growth and improving the quality of life for all New Jersey residents.
The initiative focuses on six policy areas:
early childhood education
world class transportation
"promise neighborhoods" to revitalize communities
Senate President Sweeney has enlisted a team of other Senate leaders, including Senator Jim Whelan, to oversee broader roundtable conversations with stakeholders, experts from industry and academia, and everyday citizens on each of these six areas. The feedback generated from the discussions will lead to recommendations, including legislative measures to be pursued by the Senate Democrats.
The Chamber commends the Senate President for his attention to these critical issues facing New Jersey businesses and residents and looks forward to examining the feedback from each roundtable series as the Senate President’s larger vision takes shape.
