New Jersey’s Business Climate – Threats & Opportunities

Welcome to the GSI Briefing podcast – hosted by Regina Egea, President of the Garden State Initiative.

In this episode, we bring you a discussion with NJ State Senator Mike Testa and Mr. Jason Rosenberg who is a CPA here in our state.

Senator Testa represents the 1st legislative district, which includes Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties in South Jersey. Jason Rosenberg is a senior manager in the state and local tax practice at Withum, and a leader of the NJ CPA State Taxation Interest Group.

The discussion was part of GSI’s recent policy forum on Pennsylvania’s business tax cuts and what that means for New Jersey. Mike and Jason’s remarks outline the competitive disadvantage that businesses in our state face due to high taxes, and an oppressive regulatory climate. We also discuss opportunities to keep businesses in our state and ways to lure new investment. It’s a conversation you won’t want to miss.
