“We’re excited that many of the cost-neutral jobs solutions we’ve unveiled over the past several months have already garnered bipartisan sponsorship and votes, as well as the support of various representatives of the business and higher education community. We’re now trying to accelerate this momentum to finish the job for New Jersey families and people in the workforce.”
Late last year, Senator Kean toured the Murray Hill headquarters of Bell Labs with company President Marcus Weldon and unveiled new legislation to create jobs by fostering innovation in New Jersey.
“This legislation will help expand research and development efforts, as well as create greater avenues for success by linking higher education and business communities. These bills can open doors to help impressive employers like Bell Labs grow here and attract more job creators by showing that New Jersey is devoted to staying a force for innovation.”

Earlier this year, Deputy Conference Leader Jennifer Beck announced legislation focused on Improving New Jersey’s Economic Development Policies & Programs.
“This legislation along with other bills in our new jobs package will provide state leaders with a complete picture and the answers necessary to correct the actual root causes of job loss and, in turn, make New Jersey more attractive to job creators who will hire more people in our top-notch workforce,” said Beck (R-Monmouth). “This package also helps spotlight New Jersey’s businesses in the global economy by promoting their products and giving them more opportunities to grow and expand. Boosting the state’s economic research, analyzing the value of economic development programs and considering other states’ best practices for job creation will help make New Jersey’s policy decisions more efficient and effective.”
