NJ Rev Stat § 34:1B-191 (2013) What's This?

34:1B-191 Findings, declarations relative to sports and entertainment districts.
2.The Legislature finds and declares that:

a.The blighted condition of the land and buildings in certain areas of the State discourages serious private investment, therein, a situation which is often exacerbated by the onerous tax rates which beset those municipalities.

b.The development and expansion of significant commercial and entertainment establishments can generate tangible long-term benefits for the State, its local political subdivisions, its businesses and its citizens. These benefits include increases in State sales and use tax revenues, employment and local property tax revenues, and new employment opportunities.

c.It is in the public interest to provide the means to finance certain costs of development and redevelopment in order to promote private investment, to create jobs, stimulate commercial, recreational, cultural, entertainment, civic and educational enterprises, and otherwise create favorable conditions for increases in economic activity, property values and employment opportunities.

d.The potential for substantial gains in new tax revenues, job creation, economic activity, increased recreational opportunities, and the enhancement of the quality of life in the State justifies the use of public financing to encourage private investment and to promote development and redevelopment projects that would be spurred by such State assistance.

e.It is appropriate to authorize the issuance of bonds and other notes and obligations and to provide the basis upon which to secure contract bonds, notes or other financial obligations issued in accordance with P.L.2007, c.30 (C.34:1B-190 et seq.) with respect to financing or refinancing the project costs authorized in P.L.2007, c.30 (C.34:1B-190 et seq.).

L.2007, c.30,s.2.
