SMALL BUSINESS FINALLY FINDS A BILL IT CAN SUPPORT IN THE GARDEN STATE
TRENTON (February 29, 2016): The
following statement may be attributed to New
Jersey National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) state director, Laurie Ehlbeck in response to action
taken today by the Senate Budget Committee:
The small business community in New
Jersey has been searching high and low for legislation that will actually
encourage employers to remain here instead of packing up and heading out of
state. We see a greater outward migration of people year after year and if the Estate Tax is repealed as was recommended
by the Budget Committee, we will certainly see more and more businesses
reconsidering their departure.
It is incredibly important that people be
aware that when small employers close up shop and move out of state, they take
the jobs they offer our community with them as well. Repealing the Estate Tax is a great step in improving
our overall economy for the long term not just for the small business
community, but for New Jerseyans hoping to retire in their home state as well.
