Gov. Phil Murphy’s 2022 State of the State address will be pre-taped and virtual, and is scheduled for Tuesday, January 11 at 5 p.m., the governor’s office announced today.
The address will be broadcast by News12 New Jersey and NJ Spotlight News on NJ PBS, as well as livestreamed via the governor’s official Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages.
“This year’s State of the State address will focus on our ongoing commitment to education and economic opportunity, and making our state more affordable for families,” Murphy said in a statement about the upcoming address. “Together, we will move forward on our path to building a stronger and fairer New Jersey.”
The virtual address is the second time Murphy will deliver the State of the State away from the statehouse due to the pandemic; last year’s State of the State was the first in state history not to be delivered before a joint session of the legislature.
