Murphy to send some state workers home

Non-essential state employees may begin leaving at noon

By David Wildstein, December 02 2019 9:44 am

State offices will close at noon today for non-essential personnel due to today’s snowstorm, Gov. Phil Murphy announced.

Murphy has not declared a state of emergency and said that the private sector should allow their workers to go home at their own discretion.

“The snow storm continues to intensify across our state, which will affect our roads with heavy snow and black ice,” Murphy said.. “I strongly urge all travelers to use extreme caution and allow crews plenty of room to keep our roads clean and safe. My Administration will continue to monitor the storm and will take every necessary step possible to ensure the safety of our residents and commuters.”

Murphy called for staggered closing of state offices.

A press conference organized by legislators and activists on changes to the state’s sexual abuse statute of limitations originally scheduled for 11 AM has been postponed to a later date.

Murphy has delayed his attendance at the Democratic Governors Association meeting in San Francisco, where he is slated to become chairman, as he deals with the effects of New Jersey’s weather emergency.
