(TRENTON) - To help ease monetary losses created by Superstorm Sandy and speed the economic recovery of the restaurant industry in New Jersey, Assemblyman Patrick J. Diegnan, Jr. (D-Middlesex) today announced plans to introduce legislation that would create a month-long, one-time sales tax collection exemption on meal purchases made in New Jersey restaurants.
"The state's restaurant and dining industry took a massive hit during the storm with many operators unable to open since it made landfall. Unlike other industries, loss of time equals loss of revenue that is unrecoverable, unless special circumstances are created to boost sales," said Diegnan.
