Assemblyman John McKeon (D-Essex, Morris) issued the following statement in response to today’s signing of Executive Order No. 100 and unveiling of the Administration’s Energy Master Plan:

“As we continue to experience setbacks on the issue of climate change due to federal inaction, securing a sustainable environmental future for our residents has never been more important.

“I thank Governor Murphy and the Administration for their efforts in developing a comprehensive and strategic environmental plan for New Jersey. By signing Executive Order No. 100, the Governor has initiated an impactful course of regulatory reform that will help get New Jersey on track to achieving its goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2050.
