George Norcross will testify before the Senate Select Committee on Economic Growth Strategies on Monday morning. the New Jersey Globe has learned.

One of New Jersey’s most influential powerbrokers, Norcross wrote to legislative leaders in June offering to testify.

“I hope that testifying before your committee(s) will allow me to correct the factual inaccuracies, gross misstatements and misleading information released by the governor’s task force about applications submitted by my firm, Conner Strong & Buckelew, and a handful of other Camden firms,” the Star-Ledger reported Norcross as saying.

The committee has not yet revealed their roster of individuals scheduled to appear next week, according to their website.

“The select committee will take testimony from invited guests directly impacted by New Jersey Economic Development Authority tax incentives,” the legislative website said.

The panel was formed in May at the urging of Senate President Steve Sweeney to review New Jersey’s tax incentive programs.

Gov. Phil Murphy created a task force to examine tax breaks received by businesses to remain in New Jersey.

POLITICO reported in September that Norcross planned testify in November.
