With three weeks left in the summer tourist season Governor Phil Murphy finally signed legislation repealing the tax and surcharge of Jersey Shore short term summer rentals.
Monmouth County legislators Senator Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso say Murphy’s action today is “too little, too late.”

This was a total failure of administrative planning and it likely, needlessly, cost the New Jersey economy millions of dollars.” Read the rest of this entry »Posted: August 9th, 2019 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Declan O'Scanlon, Monmouth County News, Serena DiMaso | Tags: Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, Gov Phil Murphy, Monmouth County News, Senator Declan O'Scanlon, Summer Rental Tax | Comments Off on O’Scanlon and DiMaso: Murphy’s repeal of Shore Rental Tax is “Too little, too late”
