Gov. Murphy to give speech detailing 1st year in office

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy is set to deliver his first state of the state address.

Tuesday's speech comes a year after the Democrat took over for Republican Chris Christie.

Murphy, a former Wall Street executive, achieved a number of campaign promises in his first year.

He signed six new gun control bills into law along with measures requiring paid sick leave and another calling for equal pay regardless of gender.

Several big-ticket items, though, remain stalled. Recreational marijuana legalization and a $15 minimum wage have not moved out of the Democrat-led Legislature.

Murphy also signed his first budget into law, raising taxes on incomes over $5 million and hiking business taxes. The budget also boosted public pension payment, school funding and the state subsidy for New Jersey Transit.
