As part of his ongoing efforts to engage and assist New Jersey employers, Rodney visited two more Morris County businesses with the Morris County Chamber of Commerce this week. He listened to concerns about local property taxes, the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and the impact of the new health care law. However, the most important part of the visits was engagement with the workers, who expressed concern about the economic climate in New Jersey.
"It is clear that New Jersey's tax structure and regulatory burden are creating intense pressure," Rodney said. "I told them that our top priority must be to "get government out of the way' and allow workers to do their jobs and help businesses to grow. That's the only way our economy will recover and thrive."
Rodney will continue his "listening tour" of New Jersey businesses -- large and small -- later this month.
