The Assembly Commerce and Economic Development Committee heard testimony from business owners and other supporters of the Urban Enterprise Zone today. The 28-year-old program helps distressed communities by giving tax breaks and incentives. A report commissioned by the governor called for the elimination of the UEZ claiming shutting it down would save the state about 100-million dollars a year.
