Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Extending Certain Statutory Deadlines Across State Government


Governor Phil Murphy today signed Executive Order No. 159, which temporarily extends certain statutory deadlines across state government that require review and action by agencies before a specified deadline. The statutory deadlines, in addition to certain effective dates that are being delayed, are included in the accompanying Appendix to the Order. The Order will take effect immediately.

“Our current public health emergency is having an immeasurable impact on basic state government functions,” said Governor Murphy. “By extending these deadlines, we can ensure that state agencies have the ability to address immediate needs that prioritize public health and safety, and ensure that non-emergency agency decisions are made with the proper amount of input and deliberation.”
