“Tourism is big business for this state, but cumbersome permitting and regulations sometimes make it challenging to bring major events here,” said Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris). “We’ve seen the benefits of high-profile events like the Super Bowl and WrestleMania injecting millions of dollars into the economy. By cutting through the red tape, we can make New Jersey a go-to location for large-scale special events.”

The legislation (A4918/S3306), signed today by the governor, designates a major events coordinator to assist organizers with permits, licensing and compliance with state laws and rules. The bill received unanimous support in the Senate and Assembly in May.

Tourism is a $45 billion industry in the Garden State, providing jobs for more than a half-million workers.
