“It’s no secret that New Jersey property taxes are the highest in the nation,” said Bateman (R-16). “It’s time for Trenton to start finding ways to save taxpayer money. In many cases, sharing services between municipalities or government entities will deliver the same level of service at significant cost savings and provide desperately needed relief to tax-weary families.”

Bateman’s new law, S-3763, re-titles any public body providing essential government functions through a joint contract as Regional Service Agencies, more accurately reflecting their roles. Previously, they were referred to as Joint Meetings.

“More than 40 percent of the people who live here say they are planning to leave the state,” Bateman said. “The astronomical tax burden of living here is driving them away. By encouraging and promoting cost-saving arrangements, we can start to make the state more affordable and give those families reason to stay home in New Jersey.”
