Governor Delivered State of State Address

On Tuesday, Governor Phil Murphy delivered his 2023 State of the State address. In his speech, Governor Murphy announced plans to overhaul New Jersey’s antiquated liquor laws, something that has been a longtime League priority; the extension of the deadline to apply for the ANCHOR property tax relief program until February 28; a new “Boardwalk Fund” to help make upgrades to Shore towns to be included in the Fiscal Year 2024 proposed budget; and efforts taken by the administration to address the rise in auto thefts. For more information on the address, please see our January 10 Daily Update

The Governor’s address did not discuss the 22% increase in costs for those municipalities that participate in the State Health Benefits Program. While conversations are ongoing, the issue needs to be resolved as soon as possible to minimize budgetary and revenue issues.
