TRENTON, N.J. –The state has the worst business climate in the region.

“New Jersey lost 9,300 private sector jobs last month because of tax madness,” said Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick. “The national economy achieved job growth, but our numbers haven’t been this bad since 2011.”

New Jersey’s taxes are higher than any other in the region including New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

“We have the highest taxes in region and it’s an absolute disaster for job growth,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “New Jersey has the highest income, corporate, sales and property taxes in the region. We are higher than our neighboring states and we are losing jobs because of it. Stop the madness.”
