TRENTON – Governor Phil Murphy today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 apportionment results for the U.S. House of Representatives:
“The Census results we received today are a testament to what we’ve known all along: that New Jersey is the best state in the nation to live, work, and raise a family. Not only did we gain nearly half a million residents, but we also ensured that our representation in Washington would be unchanged. Whether it’s having the number one public schools in the nation, investing in world-class transit and infrastructure, or building an economy that works for every family, we are making investments that will support our state and people for the next decade and beyond.
“I want to thank Secretary Way, members of the Complete Count Commission, and the thousands of advocates and volunteers who dedicated their time toward last year’s Census. Most importantly, I want to thank the people of New Jersey for their incredible commitment to civic engagement and democracy.”
