Governor Phil Murphy

Statement from Governor Murphy on The HEROES Act


“For months now, we have been calling on the federal government to provide much-needed relief to state governments. The HEROES Act, unveiled today by Speaker Pelosi and House leadership, is critical to ensuring that our police officers, educators, firefighters, EMTs, first responders, and other essential government workers are able to remain on the job and continue saving lives.

“I thank Speaker Pelosi, the House leadership team, and our New Jersey congressional delegation for introducing this essential legislation. It is absolutely vital that The HEROES Act quickly passes the House and Senate and is signed into law by the President. 

“The people of New Jersey are counting on it, and so am I.”
