TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A special state Assembly panel will meet this week to discuss ways to revive New Jersey’s economy and create jobs.

It’s also not clear yet how many lawmakers will be part of the panel.

Speaker Sheila Oliver said Democratic and Republican members of six committees – budget, commerce and economic development, financial institutions and insurance, labor, telecommunications and utilities and transportation – will be asked to serve.

Also invited were economic development officials from Gov. Chris Christie’s administration and business leaders from across the state.
