Veteran Owned Business Bill Package Advances

On November 30, the Assembly Military and Veterans Affairs Committee heard a package of bills aimed at making it easier for veteran-owned businesses to obtain competitive state contracts. The CCSNJ was proud to support the following bills to ensure our veteran-owned businesses have the tools to be successful in their pursuit of state contracts:

A-506 (Benson) - Establishes a price preference program on State contracts for service-disabled veteran-owned businesses.

A-870 (Tucker/Gove/Benson) - Establishes a price preference program on State contracts for businesses owned by women veterans or women in military service.

A-4211/S-2249 (Benson/Reynolds-Jackson/Singleton/Oroho) - Revises the number of qualified disabled veterans' businesses required to designate set-aside contract from three to two.

A-506 (Benson) and A-4211/S-2249 (Benson/Reynolds-Jackson/Singleton/Oroho) passed unanimously, and A-870 (Tucker/Gove/Benson) passed 4-1. All the bills now move to second reading.
