220th Legislative Session

The first and second quarter of 2022 proved to be a busy one as the legislature continues to look forward from the pandemic. The Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey (CCSNJ) is grateful to be back speaking with legislators in the halls of Trenton on behalf of our members.

219th Legislative Session

The following is a full summary of the CCSNJ’s work in public policy work over the last two years, including each bill weighed in on, those bills signed into law by Governor Murphy, and the state budget testimony of the two unprecedented budgets passed by the Legislature. We look forward to returning in-person to the State House during the 220th legislative session, currently underway, continuing our relationships with the returning members of the South Jersey Delegation, as well as welcoming its newly elected members. 

219th Legislative Session

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, CCSNJ's priorities have shifted to helping our members navigate this crisis, but we wanted to share some of the more non-COVID-19 issues and measures that the CCSNJ has worked on throughout 2020.

218th Legislative Session

The 218th Legislative Session brought a vast amount of activity that impacts the South Jersey business community. As the South Jersey business community’s voice in Trenton, the CCSNJ worked diligently throughout this legislative session to ensure that its members were well-represented on the issues that matter most to members' bottom line and day-to-day business operations.

"The CCSNJ excels at bringing forward our political leaders for direct interaction with small business leaders."

Board Council Reports

The Chamber’s Board Council on Government Spending Reports are the product of the efforts and expertise of our Board level committee of industry experts. The focus was on efficiency, not on cutting or eliminating programs. Our Board Council has developed 100 recommendations, which conservatively could save State government, and therefore taxpayers, approximately $1 billion. The Chamber has worked closely with state government officials to implement the recommendations contained in these reports, share our ideas, recommendations and expertise.

The New Jersey Organization for a Better State (NEW JOBS) is a nonpartisan organization whose trustees promote a probusiness climate in New Jersey by endorsing and supporting legislative candidates who actively support economic growth, the creation of private-sector jobs, and the lowering of business costs.

NEW JOBS is the State’s largest and most influential ideological business political action committee. Other interest groups put their backing behind candidates who understand their specific issues. We do the same in supporting candidates for New Jersey Legislature that protect and defend business.
