State of the State: Tom Gilbert Reflects on Gov. Murphy’s First Year, Looks to Future

Posted January 15, 2019

A statement from Tom Gilbert, campaign director for New Jersey Conservation Foundation and ReThink Energy NJ

January 15, 2019 — “Gov. Murphy can count some big clean energy wins from his first year, including the clean energy bill and rejoining RGGI. However, a host of unneeded, polluting fossil projects, such as the proposed PennEast pipeline and others, threaten to undermine the governor’s progress toward clean energy and addressing climate change. The state should use its full authority and deny permits for projects that don’t meet New Jersey’s strict environmental standards, because there is greater urgency with each passing day of climate inaction on the part of the Trump administration.”
