Tom Kean: Common Core Will Benefit NJ Students

When it comes to education, New Jersey has consistently been a leader. It’s something on which we pride ourselves.
A critical part of being a great leader, however, is regularly seeking ways to do better, and this is exactly what we did in June 2010, when New Jersey adopted the Common Core State Standards, a set of benchmarks for what students should know at each grade level so they all graduate high school prepared for college and careers.

VIDEO: Why Boaters Don’t Like Ethanol

If you own a boat, you may have heard by now that a government mandate has been increasing the amount of ethanol in the nation’s fuel supply, which not only damages boat engine and fuel systems but can present very real safety concerns. Mandating the increasing use of the ethanol was legislation passed in 2005, the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which BoatUS, along with a coalition of world hunger, oil and gas industry, environmental, and restaurant groups, petroleum distributors, meat and poultry producers, and auto and power equipment manufacturers, is now fighting to repeal. That’s because the Standard no longer reflects America’s fuel usage, which has been on a decline and is opposite of the legislation’s assumptions made nearly a decade ago.

With Winter Weather Behind Them, Retail Employment Grows in March, According to NRF

The National Retail Federation today issued the following statements from NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay and Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz in response to the March jobs report:

“After a long, harsh winter that put many retailers at a disadvantage in terms of inventory control and staffing their stores, merchants are eager to move forward with their spring hiring and operational plans,” Matthew Shay said. “Though we can report relatively positive figures for March, there’s still noticeable slack in the labor market; in order to see momentum in economic growth through 2014, it’s imperative our leaders in Washington put job creation and the economy back at the top of their agenda, giving businesses the confidence they need to grow and invest.”

Pascrell, Reed Bill to Assist Long-Term Unemployed Advances in Senate

Bipartisan legislation would extend Work Opportunity Tax Credit to incentivize hiring of workers that have exhausted their unemployment benefits

WASHINGTON – U.S. Reps. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ) and Tom Reed (R-NY), both members of the House Ways and Means Committee, today praised the Senate Finance Committee for advancing their legislation that would incentivize businesses to hire qualified individuals that have been out of work for more than 26 weeks. The provision was included in the Expiring Provisions Improvement Reform and Efficiency (EXPIRE) Act, a package of “tax extenders” that have expired or will expire at the end of this year. The provision and its House companion, H.R. 3726, the Long-term Unemployed Hiring Incentive Act, would extend the successful Work Opportunity Tax Credit program to allow companies that hire long-term unemployed individuals to be eligible for a tax credit of up to $2400. The Senate amendment was sponsored by Senators Portman, Cardin and Warner.
