04 Mar: Sweeney Legislation Creating Taxpayer Savings & More Efficient Government Clears Committee

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester, Salem, Cumberland) that would allow counties to share county tax administrators cleared the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee today.

“Given the current economic climate of the state, government should be doing everything it can to reduce the burden on property tax payers,” said Sweeney. “Shared services are one common sense way we can do that. There is simply too much government in New Jersey and we need to run things more efficiently and at a lower cost.”
