Murphy will join Biden at White House discussion of infrastructure projects

New Jersey Democrat among bipartisan group of governors, mayors

Gov. Phil Murphy will join President Joe Biden at the White House on Wednesday afternoon as part of a bipartisan panel conversation on infrastructure projects.

Murphy will be among a group of governors and mayors who will address issues related to Biden’s proposed $3.5 trillion infrastructure proposal.

Since the day Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential race, Murphy has been pushing the fledgling administration for support of the Gateway Project to expand rail services between New Jersey and New York.

Senate Democrats said today that they have reached a budget deal within their own caucus.

The New Jersey governor, who is up for re-election this year, will take questions from the White House press corps after the roundtable discussion.

Murphy will remain in Washington until Thursday, with Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver serving as acting governor.
