Governor Phil Murphy

Statement by Governor Murphy on President Biden's Address to a Joint Session of Congress


“Tonight the President put forward a plan for American families as ambitious as the nation itself. As we prepare for our post-pandemic future, the American Families Plan would ensure that all families have the economic, educational, and health security necessary to more fully be part of that future. 

“Greater investment in our public schools, especially in pre-K. Making health care and child care more accessible and affordable. Targeted tax breaks that build a stronger middle class. Putting a community college degree with reach of anyone who wants one. Tackling long-standing maternal health disparities. We have made great strides in each of these areas already in New Jersey and have positive proof points for how transformative these policies have been for families across the Garden State. We stand ready to support President Biden in leading the way with forward-looking policies to build a better tomorrow.”
