TRENTON - State lawmakers gathered in Trenton today to look at ways to grow jobs across New Jersey.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno says that cutting taxes and regulations have helped turned the tide for unemployed New Jersey residents. Guadango also said she supports Gov. Chris Christie's efforts to bring new businesses to the state.

Democrats countered Guadango's claims, saying that New Jersey's unemployment rate remains above the national average and worry that the state is recovering as fast as the tri-state area.
