The bill, A-2608, which was introduced and sponsored by four Democratic legislators, has been sent to the New Jersey Senate.The exemption bill, A-2608, also requires that:
● If the retailer locates its new facilities within a quarter-mile of public transportation, it must encourage employees to use public transportation. If the retailer locates its facilities further than a quarter-mile from public transportation, it must work with New Jersey transportation officials to provide an alternative plan for “viable” commuting options for employees who rely on public transportation.
● All workers employed in the construction of the new facilities be paid at least the prevailing wage for their positions.
● The retailer commit to continue operating its new facilities in New Jersey for at least five years following the sales-tax exemption period.
