What an amazing 100 days. Wednesday, April 25th, marked Governor Phil Murphy’s 100th Day in Office and working families everyone are reaping the benefits.
Together with a progressive governor, we are turning the page on the disastrous Christie administration and every pro-working families policy they sought to dismantle.
New Jersey has really hit the ground running in the past 100 days, and we have a lot to be proud of. Here are some of the First 100 Day Highlights:
- Gov. Murphy signed an executive order to restored $7.45 million in funding to Planned Parenthood and other women’s health care facilities and expanded Medicaid coverage for family planning services for families making up to 200% of the federal poverty level.
- Signed into law the nation’s strongest equal pay law
- Made New Jersey the 12th state to implement Automatic Voter Registration to expand access to voting.
- New Jersey joined the States for Gun Safety Coalition with governors of New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Delaware, and Puerto Rico to create regional solutions for gun violence.
- Statewide Earned Sick Days passed the State Legislature and now only awaits the Governor’s signature
Governor Phil Murphy has shown that he is with us, but there is still a fight ahead in the halls of the statehouse. In order to take back our state, we must fight for a clean $15 minimum wage, stronger wage theft protections, and public investments that put workers first.
The Fight for $15 is within reach, but we need your help!
