(TRENTON) - Assembly Democratic leadership on Tuesday announced the Assembly will focus much of its December activity to an extensive job creation and economic development initiative.
The Assembly's Dec. 17 voting session, they said, is expected to include more than 20 bills focusing on job creation and economic development initiatives.
"New Jersey faces great challenges in the months - even years - ahead when it comes to rebuilding after Sandy, but we cannot forget that New Jersey's unemployment rate was hovering near 10 percent even before the storm hit," said Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic). "We already faced a need to focus on job creation and economic growth, and that need is now exacerbated. What we need is this multi-pronged approach to reinvigorate our economy."

“I would love to go back there and retire there and live there in an independent country that is my birth right. I worked hard in this country, I made friends, but I have been detached.
