Gov. Phil Murphy announced the members of his Restart and Recovery Commission, which will help guide him in the process of reopening the state.
Murphy said the group is unrivaled in terms of its diversity of experiences, perspectives and expertise.
“It is composed of experts in a multitude of fields — from academia to industry to the arts to labor, and so much more,” he said. “They bring passion and vision to the table. And, if there’s anything we need right now, it’s both.”
Bill Rodgers, professor of public policy and chief economist at the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University and former chief economist at the U.S. Department of Labor, was one of the 16 sitting members, it was announced.
