The head of the Assembly Science, Innovation and Technology said he would sponsor a bill creating Gov. Phil Murphy’s “Innovation Evergreen Fund” – if given the chance – and would hope to see the measure approved by the end of budget season on June 30.


“Of course, I would be delighted to sponsor it, but… that’s part of an ongoing budget negotiation, and we’ve got many issues that are much bigger than simply an evergreen [fund],” the committee chair, Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, D-16th District, said in New Brunswick on Wednesday at New Brunswick Development Corp.’s “Venture Funding in the New Jersey Innovation Economy – Evergreen and Beyond.”
