New Jersey Future statement on Governor Murphy’s State of the State Address


New Jersey Future Executive Director Peter Kasabach released the following statements on Governor Murphy’s State of the State Address:


“The last year has presented unexpected challenges and highlighted long standing systemic issues such as social and racial inequity, but we are optimistic that the policies highlighted in Governor Murphy’s State of the State Address today will indeed allow us to recover stronger. Place-based economic development initiatives such as those included in the Economic Recovery Act will help jump start our economy, including our downtown main streets so severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and promote smart growth policies proven to strengthen communities. Infrastructure investments, including the portal bridge project, are critical both for stimulating local economies and, when it comes to transit, reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. These priorities, coupled with an emphasis on equity, indicate that the state is moving in the right direction to achieve a stronger and fairer New Jersey for everyone.”
