State of New Jersey
Executive Order #20

Governor Jon S. Corzine

WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 16 (2006), declaring a State of Emergency, was issued on June 28, 2006, because of severe weather conditions, including heavy rains, main stream and river flooding and progressing runoff that threatened and damaged homes and other structures and the flow of traffic throughout the State; and

WHEREAS, the severity of the conditions necessitating the declaration of a State of Emergency has now eased, although the recovery from these floods will take some time; and

WHEREAS, in consideration of these factors, the emergency powers granted by a State of Emergency are no longer necessary;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JON S. CORZINE, Governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and by the Statutes of this State, do hereby ORDER and DIRECT:

  1. The State of Emergency declared in Executive Order No. 16 (2006) is terminated effective immediately.

GIVEN, under my hand and seal this 10th day
of July, Two Thousand and Six, and of the
Independence of the United States, the Two
Hundred and Thirty-First.

/s/ Jon S. Corzine
