New Jersey

In this video press release, Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex), Majority Leader Louis D. Greenwald (D-Camden) and Budget Committee Chair Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) announce that the Assembly will focus much of its December activity on an extensive job creation and economic development initiative that is expected to include more than 20 bills.

The December effort will build off the final legislative approval recently given by the Assembly to increase New Jersey's minimum wage to $8.50/hr and tie further adjustments to increases in the Consumer Price Index (A-2162) in order to create a more livable wage for working class residents and, in turn, boost economic activity.
