Clean Water Action organizers were on hand to celebrate Governor Murphy’s announcement that he is issuing an Executive Order to reduce New Jersey’s greenhouse gas emissions to 50% of their 2006 levels by the year 2030. The announcement took place with a backdrop of construction vehicles as workers continued to install the nation’s largest solar farm on reclaimed landfill.

"Thanks to the tireless work of our members, organizers, local activists, and elected officials who never stopped believing we could stop this dangerous and unnecessary pipeline, we are celebrating today," said Eric Benson, Clean Water Action, NJ Campaigns Director. "But we know the fossil fuel industry will continue to try to put their profits before people and the planet. We are ready to build on our existing deep partnerships with Governor Murphy, US Representatives Watson-Coleman and Malinowski, NJ Senators Turner and Bateman, and Assemblyman Zwicker. Together we will continue to fight to build a clean energy future -- and we know we can win."
