Assembly Democrats News Release

Assembly Panel Approves Package of Bills Cutting Red Tape to Help Save Businesses Money, Streamline State Services

Burzichelli, Ramos, Egan, Stender & Wisniewski Sponsored Bills Are Part of Assembly Democratic Job Creation Effort

(TRENTON) - An Assembly panel on Tuesday approved a package of bills sponsored by Assembly Democrats John Burzichelli, Ruben Ramos, Jr., Joseph Egan, Linda Stender and John Wisniewski that will cut bureaucratic red tape to help save businesses money and streamline state services. The bills are part of a comprehensive job creation effort laid out by Assembly Democrats last week.

"If we're going to get New Jersey back on its feet and get our economy humming again, we need to eliminate as many unnecessary hurdles as possible so businesses can get up and running more quickly," said Burzichelli (D-Cumberland/Salem/Gloucester), who served on the state's Red Tape Review Commission. "These bills are part of an ongoing effort to cut red tape, make New Jersey more business-friendly and revive our economy."

The first bill (A-3319), sponsored by Burzichelli, Ramos, Egan and Stender, would prohibit state government departments and agencies from imposing a fee, fine, or penalty on any applicant when it is imposed solely to correct clerical errors made by the applicant on an application for a permit, certificate, or any other purpose. The bill, however, would not apply to an applicant who provides false, misleading, or fraudulent information on an application.
