New Jersey lawmakers propose business expansion plans

    A couple of New Jersey lawmakers are introducing legislation to help small businesses expand.

    Assembly members Linda Greenstein and Wayne DeAngelo are sponsoring a seven-bill business expansion and job plan.

    Greenstein says the measures would provide grants to small businesses that add jobs, and give tax credits for revitalizing empty strip malls.

    “Some may criticize the plan and say that New Jersey can’t afford grants or tax credits. But in fact we can’t afford to not move bills like this. Getting people back to work from what we can see is job one right now.”

    The lawmakers could not provide estimates of the cost of implementing their proposals.
