Governor Murphy Takes Action on Legislation

TRENTON – Today, Governor Murphy signed the following resolution into law:

SJR96 (Singleton, Cruz-Perez/Vainieri Huttle, DeAngelo, Chiaravalloti) - Designates October of each year as "Disability Employment Awareness Month."

“I commend the Legislature for recognizing the many unfair obstacles that individuals with disabilities face when looking for work and on the job,” said Governor Murphy. “One’s mental or physical ability should never foreclose an opportunity. In New Jersey, we will continue our efforts to ensure that this State is an inclusive and accessible place, providing necessary tools and support so that everyone is given the chance for employment.”
