Governor’s Suspension Costing North Bergen 200 Jobs, State Coffers $55 Million
Assembly members Joan M. Quigley, Vincent Prieto and Connie Wagner Thursday again took Gov. Chris Christie to task for suspending the state’s $10 million film tax credit for one year, a move which forced the production unit for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” to move from North Bergen, New Jersey to Chelsea Piers, New York, costing the state far more than was saved.
“In his short-sighted effort to get the budget to balance by any means necessary, Gov. Christie has once again wound up costing the state more money that would have been saved,” said Quigley (D-Hudson), a member of the Assembly Budget Committee who represents North Bergen. “The show’s production unit pumped $55 million annually into the state’s economy. We lost that revenue forever to save $10 million for one year.”
