If You Make Money Off NJ, Live In NJ

publicPayrollPublic workers in New Jersey would also be required to live in the Garden State under a newly proposed bill. The measure by state Sen. Donald Norcross, D-Brooklawn, requires workers to move to New Jersey within 30 months. New employees would have four months to establish residency. The bill applies to state, county, municipal employees and those working for political subdivisions of the state. Employees of public authorities, boards, agencies and commissions would also be subject to the measure. So would anyone working within the educational system, including state colleges and universities.

Norcross says it’s only fair for employees that make money off the state work live here and pay taxes.

Public worker unions worry that it could set off a border war.

Gov. Chris Christie supports the idea. AP

  1. I don’t think more than 20% of our township employees live in Lakewood! If we want a strong Lakewood economy start hiring within or make them more like the state is doing! In the LDC only 2 of the employees live in Lakewood. Gotta wonder with their goal of expanding business and providing much needed jobs to the Lakewood community what they have to say about this? The Executive Director herself doesn’t live in Lakewood. We gotta wonder if this is why we are always getting shortchanged!

  2. Great idea governer!What about enforcing this in Lakewood. Or do we only want to continue the status quo and support those that eat our taxes up! We pay the taxes, we get the jobs. I was happy to hear that the township awarded the marketing job to a Lakewood company rather than another outside of Lakewood company. But this really is a major good idea. We are a town with such high unemployment. This can make a big difference.
