Senator Steve Oroho (R-Sussex, Morris, Hunterdon) called on the Democrat leadership of the Senate and Assembly to abandon plans for higher taxes in response to an economic forecast presented by Rutgers economists at a conference yesterday. At the conference, Nancy Mantell, director of the Rutgers Economic Advisory Service, stated, “New Jersey is starting to turn around, but job growth will be very slow.”
