NJ Assembly Environment Committee to hold hearing on HPRA
The Assembly Environment Committee has just published their hearing schedule for Mon., May 11, 2 p.m. in Cttee Room #9 of the Statehouse Annex and the long-sought historic preservation tax credit (HPRA – A791) is on the agenda!
Spread the word, and meantime PLEASE contact Assembly members Barnes (18), Milam (1), Rooney (39), Huttle (37) and Van Pelt (9), members of the committee, especially if they are your representative. Get contact info from the legislature website.
You can get plenty of information from the NJ Heritage Development Coalition website and blog, including statistics on how the credits in other states actually generate positive tax revenue for their treasuries, create jobs and economic stimulus.
Most importantly tell legislators how valuable the tax credit would be to your community, economic development, job creation, quality of life, etc. Would you please let us know the results of any conversation you have before Monday afternoon at 2?
