The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce is pleased that the constitutional amendment mandating pension payments will not be on the November ballot.

This should clear the way for state legislators to expeditiously resolve the Transportation Trust Fund and tax fairness issues, including the phase out of the estate tax, as proposed by the state Senate and Assembly.

The N.J. Chamber believes the state legislature should pass the proposed legislation that responsibly funds the Transportation Trust Fund and effectively provides tax reform and fairness. Both are critical to New Jersey's economic future.

We are very pleased to see New Jersey's strong job growth in the month of June. As we have said many times, job growth is the key to the economic future of New Jersey and we hope this month begins a sustained trend that enhances New Jersey's business climate and enables us to achieve fiscal stability.

As I watched the Republican National Convention roll call on Monday night, I was struck by the number of times delegates displayed pride in their respective states, and talked about the prominence and prosperity in place "back home." That's in stark contrast to the stalled Transportation Trust Fund/tax fairness situation we are facing here in New Jersey.

Dr. Bonnie Bassler, whose work at Princeton University is changing the face of medicine and laying the groundwork for new antibiotics, will receive the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce's second annual Alice H. Parker Women Leaders in Innovation Award, the N.J. Chamber announced today.

It is imperative that we begin to invest in the repair and upgrades of our roads, bridges, tunnels and other infrastructure as soon as possible. This is critical to our state's economic health and to the safety of the thousands of New Jersey drives who use and depend on this infrastructure every day.

While no one likes tax increases and not all of the provisions in the TTF funding bill are optimal, the overall impact of the legislation is positive. The revenue raised by the TTF bill will be invested in repair and maintenance of our roads, bridges and tunnels, which is a critical investment for New Jersey's future.
