From the Governor

We’re not giving lip service to climate change — we’re actively engaged in this fight. It’s a fight that is helping to transform our energy infrastructure, the way we live and move about, the way we build, and the way we look at being New Jerseyans. And to be sure, it is transforming it for the better. The ultimate goal of every New Jerseyan is to leave to their kids and to future generations a state that is better than the one in which we currently live.

Gov. Phil Murphy
