TRENTON, NJ- Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, released the following statement today regarding Governor Murphy’s State of the State Address:


Our state has made huge strides to turn back the hands of time on the toxic legacy of the Christie Administration.  Governor Murphy has put New Jersey in the running to be the greenest state in America.  By advancing clean energy and environmental justice, as well as holding polluters accountable, Governor Murphy has made it clear that a stronger and fairer New Jersey cannot happen without prioritizing environmental health and safety.  The Governor is making good on his bold vision for New Jersey becoming fossil-fuel-free by 2050 with the largest commitment to offshore wind in America, creating tens of thousands of good local jobs in the clean energy economy.
