New Jersey State Legislative Leadership initially established the New Jersey Economic and Fiscal Policy Review Committee to examine the negative impact of federal policies on New Jersey’s residents, businesses, economy, real estate values, affordability, and competitiveness and to have the committee identify strategies to mitigate the impact. The Committee’s mission quickly developed into a full assessment of the long-term budget challenges facing state and local governments; the fairness, adequacy, efficiency and affordability of the state’s current revenue structure across all levels of government; and how to deliver services more efficiently and cost-effectively at various levels of government.  The Path to Progress Report and recommendations have come from this committees efforts.

Legislative leaders introduced a 27-bill package on Thursday, May 17 to institute reforms called for by Senate President Steve Sweeney’s “Path to Progress” initiative.

Sweeney said the bills are designed to fix New Jersey’s fiscal crisis, restore the stability of the pension system and save tens of billions of dollars for taxpayers.

The following 16 question survey is related to the Path to Progress report and the recently introduced bills.   Your input will provide valuable insight to the Greater Atlantic City Chamber and our elected officials.
