Legislation Would Incentivize Relocation of Qualified Data Centers to New Jersey
(SOUTH BRUNSWICK) – Legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker that would encourage businesses that specialize in processing, storing and distributing electronic data to relocate to New Jersey was released Monday by an Assembly panel.
“In our 21st-century global economy, just about every major business relies on complex hardware and software. The facilities that house these systems can benefit from relocating to New Jersey and hiring from the state’s highly-educated talent pool,” said Zwicker (D-Hunterdon/Mercer/Middlesex/Somerset). “The state is lagging behind in this sector. By encouraging data centers to relocate, the state can take advantage of an opportunity to bring high-tech jobs to New Jersey as digital information continues to grow increasingly more essential to various industries.”
