New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy delivered his first budget address to a joint session of the Legislature in Trenton today. Murphy’s word of the day was “investment.” Investment in NJ TRANSIT, statewide Pre-K, community college, gun violence research, and more. The big question is whether the support for Murphy’s proposal for funding these priorities – namely millionaires’ tax, marijuana and increased sales tax – will materialize in the Legislature. We’ve got the skinny.
This issue of TrueNorth covers the introduction of legislation to legalize marijuana for recreational use. We also spotlight a number of recent transit developments in the region that could reshape train travel for generations to come. We also give you a few nuggets from the gubernatorial campaign trail in the lead-up to the June 6 primary.
