NEW BRUNSWICK — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy held his policy meeting on Friday, in which he announced his plan to continue pushing for a tax on households making more than $1 million to help pay for some of his policy initiatives, including education. He also promoted his decision to fight for a $15 minimum wage and his support for legalizing recreational marijuana. Finally, the governor said that he stands by Democrats in Congress in their push for “common sense” gun reform.

"Our generation is failing on gun safety. They will show us the way. It gives me confidence that long after we are gone, there will be a new generation of progressive leaders who will act not on politics but on evidence, on facts and on common sense," Murphy said.

Murphy will also attend the local “March For Our Lives” event in Newark on Saturday.
