Here are some of the principal ideas included in the Opportunity NJ plan, which aims to allow New Jersey to lead its peer Northeast states in job growth and median wage growth by addressing:
- Fiscally challenged and outdated legacy systems, including the pension and health benefits issue involving state workers;
- School funding formula/property tax problems, including a consolidation/shared services test piloting two K-12 districtsand creation of more public-private partnerships;
- Infrastructure, including responsible investment in water (drinking, sewerage and storm water), power and New Jersey Transit;
- Job growth, including a moratorium on new taxes, fees, costs, government actions that affect the state’s job creators for two years.
