The public policy agenda is dominated by post-Sandy issues and gubernatorial and legislative elections. Against this backdrop, Gov. Christie will give the keynote address at NAIOP's Annual Public Policy Symposium. Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald will participate in an interactive discussion  with NAIOP NJ President Michael Seeve and Public Affairs Chair Richard Cureton about how NJ will:
  • Ensure that the billions of dollars in Sandy recovery money are deployed to the greatest effect while minimizing waste and misuse.
  • Repair, improve and maintain our critical transportation, energy, water and telecommunications infrastructure to ensure reliability and keep NJ working.
  • Protect the just-recovering commercial real estate industry from the imposition of the 2.5 percent COAH fee when the moratorium expires in June.
  • Encourage NJ towns to think and act differently to become partners in solutions (whether they be to post-Sandy problems, staggering suburban office park vacancies, loss of young talent or business climate issues) instead of obstacles to progress.
  • Re-think the forms of incentives (tax credits, energy efficiency, expedited permits) New Jersey offers with the goal of creating benefits that are meaningful to all employers and prospective employers, not just a fortunate few, and allow the state sufficient flexibility to respond to emerging markets and changing market forces. 

You will also get an update on Washington from NAIOP VP Government Affairs Aquiles Suarez. Registration/breakfast/networking begins at 8:30 AM, Sheraton Edison Raritan Center.

Sponsors: Chicago Title, Matrix Development Group, Jones Lang LaSalle, Whitman and The Hampshire Companies, Wolff & Samson and Avison Young. Additional sponsorships available, please contact Bonnie Sovinee.
