Between the rising cost of living and weakening job security, our families are struggling to make ends meet in these tough times. That's why Nelson and Matt are investing in local small businesses to protect jobs and grow South Jersey's economy. They know firsthand what it takes to create jobs--Matt runs his family's trucking company in Vineland, which provides over 100 local jobs.
Nelson and Matt are working to help small business owners by eliminating exorbitant fees, cutting red tape and providing other incentives. To strengthen casino workers' job security, they sponsored the bill that would enable the casinos to stay open during a State government shutdown and provide funding for casino regulation during periods when annual appropriations are not in effect. They also sponsored the amendment to the State Constitution that proposes continued operation of lotteries, casinos and horse racing in event that annual appropriations law is not enacted. Together with Senator Van Drew, Nelson and Matt will continue to support incentives that bring new, quality jobs to South Jersey and fight for state funding to support our local industries.
