Murphy Orders Flags to Fly at Half-Staff in Honor of Former Senator Rice

Senator Ronald Rice says that he will not vote on a NJ state budget that doesn't include $140 million in cost savings gained through a marijuana decriminalization and expungement law that eliminates unjust judicial and correctional practices targeting poor, minority and urban residents.

Governor Phil Murphy today ordered that U.S. and New Jersey flags fly at half-staff at all state buildings and facilities from Thursday, March 16, 2023 until Thursday, March 23, 2023 in recognition and remembrance of former Senator Ron Rice.

“It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of Senator Ron Rice, a man whom I was proud to call a partner and a friend,” said Governor Murphy. “New Jersey has lost a champion who leaves behind a legacy of compassion and courage. We will continue to strive for equity and fairness in this state, remembering at each step of the way that these were the values that defined his leadership. Tammy and I send our heartfelt condolences to all of Senator Rice’s loved ones.”

  1. I didn’t notice flags at half-mast when Republican Senators or Assemblyman pass away. Murphy is such a pandering POS. I testified before Rice on child support issues and false domestic violence issues. He was as clueless as a rock on the subjects and stated that women needed protection. Rice was just another panderer to the left-wing, Socialist feminist groups that wrecked the family courts.
