“I am extremely honored and grateful to the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce for this prestigious award,” Senator Singer said. “We cannot keep our promise to make New Jersey a better, more affordable place to live, work and retire without making a solid investment in our small business owners and budding entrepreneurs. They are truly the backbone of our economy and they deserve our unwavering support.”
The Chamber lauded Senator Singer for sponsoring several pro-business bills, and for his support of a landmark tax reform package that eliminated the regressive estate tax while replenishing the Transportation Trust Fund.
“The State Chamber applauds and congratulates the strong advocacy of Senator Singer during the 217th Legislative Session in helping us with our priorities in improving the economy, retaining and creating jobs and enhancing the overall business climate of New Jersey,” Tom Bracken, President of the NJ State Chamber of Commerce said. “We especially recognize and appreciate Senator Singer’s support for the replenishment of the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund and the passage of the comprehensive tax reform package that will go a long way in achieving those priorities.”
Senator Singer, along with the four other state legislators chosen for the biannual award, will be officially recognized at the New Jersey Chamber’s Legislative Awards Reception on Oct. 11 at the Bank of America Hopewell Conference Center in Pennington beginning at 5 p.m.
“We made great progress this year on tax reform, but there is still so much more we can do from a legislative perspective to make New Jersey a more friendly place to grow or start a business,” Senator Singer added. “I will continue to work tirelessly on a bipartisan basis to cut red tape and enact policies that encourage innovators to set up shop in the Garden State and create good-paying jobs for our residents.”
