Governor Phil Murphy

Statement from Governor Murphy on Build Back Better


"Today’s vote in the House of Representatives is a tremendously positive step forward for President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, which will provide historic investments in working and middle class American families. The transformative plan will make child care, education, health care, and housing more affordable, while investing in workforce development and clean energy to address climate change and support a green economy. The Build Back Better plan will cut taxes for working families by asking the wealthiest Americans and large corporations to pay their fair share. The Democratic members of our New Jersey delegation that voted in favor of this bill understand how these critical investments will boost our state’s economy and improve the lives of all New Jerseyans, and I thank them for their unwavering support."
