State Senate and Assembly create bipartisan proposal to attract Amazon

By ,

New Jersey’s state Senate and Assembly have crafted a bipartisan effort to attract Amazon’s new second headquarters to the garden state.

Senate President Steve Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr. and Assembly Minority Leader Bramnick were all attached to the bipartisan letter sent to Gov. Chris Christie expressing a commitment to attracting the multibillion-dollar e-commerce company.

“We possess the assets that will allow Amazon to thrive with a skilled workforce, a quality transportation infrastructure, the best research universities in the country and a strategic location,” Sweeney said in a prepared statement.

“We have the real-estate options and competitive incentives to build HQ2, and the talent to fill every job Amazon has to offer,” Bramnick said.

Interest in attracting Amazon has had bipartisan approval across the state, including individual municipalities like Camden.
