Acting Governor Tahesha Way today (10/16) signed two bills that build upon the Murphy Administration’s all-of-government approach to promoting the growth of small businesses and economic opportunity in New Jersey. The first bill (A3424/S1447) requires the New Jersey Department of Treasury, in partnership with the New Jersey Business Action Center (BAC), to host an “Annual Business Matchmaking Event” to connect small businesses with federal, state, and local government agencies and contractors.
