Resolution sponsored by Senator Vin Gopal and Senator Kristen M. Corrado
 that would designate the month of May each year as “Small Business 
Month” in New Jersey advanced from the Senate, June 7.

“Small businesses are what make the 
economy in New Jersey flow, and propel our state to an even brighter 
future,” said Senator Gopal (D-Monmouth).  “As a small business owner 
myself, I understand the day-to-day difficulties that these 
entrepreneurs can face.  I am committed to supporting mom-and-pops not 
only in Monmouth County, but throughout the entire state.”

The resolution, SJR-27, aims to 
recognize the vital importance of small businesses in the state and 
local economies, and how their success strengthens community identity 
and pride.

The resolution would request the 
Governor to annually issue a proclamation calling upon public officials,
 private organizations, and all citizens and residents of this state to 
observe the month by patronizing small businesses, as well as engaging 
in appropriate activities and programs designed to support small 
businesses across the state.

“The roundtable discussions were 
incredibly productive, and I hope we can take what we learned and apply 
them in order to make New Jersey a better state to do business in,” 
continued Senator Gopal.

New Jersey has over 800,000 small 
businesses, comprising more than 98 percent of all employers in the 
state.  Small businesses employ 1.7 million workers, making up more than
 50 percent of the state’s workforce.  They have a strong presence in 
New Jersey communities, and support a range of local services.


During the month of May, Senator Gopal 
hosted a number of small business roundtable discussions to honor 
National Small Business Month. Business owners were encouraged to visit, Senator Gopal’s small business initiative, to 
inform him about their business and submit written comments about the 
issues they have encountered.

The resolution was released from the Senate by a vote of 37-0, and next heads to the Assembly for further consideration.
