When it comes to regulations that hamper business growth, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie won’t have it. The Republican governor told an economic forum in New York that he’s cut one-third of the Garden State’s red tape because he is an “unashamed, unapologetic” advocate for business, The Star-Ledger in Newark reported Friday.

Chris Christie, New Jersey, governor, businessBusiness people shouldn’t have to pay lobbyists and consultants to have their request heard in Trenton. That’s why Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno has been traveling the state meeting with business leaders and handing out her cell phone number so people can call if they run into regulatory road blocks, he said.

“You are our partners, not our banks," Christie said, referring to the business community.

Christie spoke Thursday to a group of graduate students, academics, and business leaders at a conference sponsored by the University of Rochester. Academics and researchers at the conference agreed with much of what Christie said.

Peter Kasabach, executive director of New Jersey Future, a research organization, said that Christie was right to reduce regulations that have become redundant.

"Streamlining regulations for businesses to come to New Jersey and locate in places we want them to locate is a good idea, and we think the administration is taking it seriously," he said.
