Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Extending Certain Statutory Deadlines Across State Government


Governor Phil Murphy today signed Executive Order No. 170, which temporarily extends certain statutory deadlines across state government that require review and action by agencies before a specified deadline. The deadlines were previously extended on June 30, with Executive Order No. 159. The statutory deadlines, in addition to certain effective dates that are being delayed, are included in the accompanying Appendix to the Order. The Order will take effect immediately.

“As the state government has responded to the COVID-19 crisis, resources have been immensely strained,” said Governor Murphy. “Extending these deadlines allows state agencies to continue to be able to meet the needs of New Jerseyans, and provides agencies with crucial time to make decisions with the consideration and input necessary for the long-term benefit of our state.”
