Statement from Governor Murphy on the Supreme Court’s Decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency


“Throughout the past week, the Supreme Court’s far-right majority has made it abundantly clear: governments can control women’s bodies, but not the guns that endanger our communities or the polluters who imperil the future of our planet. Today’s decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency rolls back federal progress under the Clean Air Act and threatens to exacerbate climate change while severely impacting the health of Americans across the country. In the wake of yet another tragic ruling, we will continue to do everything in our power to combat the climate crisis and preserve New Jersey’s environmental and public health. And we will continue charging toward our ambitious goal of creating a 100-percent clean energy economy by 2050.”
