New Jersey’s Gov. Phil Murphy on Resisting Trump

Michele and Igor speak with New Jersey Gov. Murphy about the progress his state has made, as well as with CAP Senior Vice President of Policy and Strategy Ben Olinsky about some of CAP's big policy ideas.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) joins Michele and Igor to discuss the progress his state has made—including passing equal pay and paid sick leave, pushing back against the GOP tax bill, and his decision to create a Cabinet as diverse as New Jersey—despite President Donald Trump’s efforts to dismantle progressive agendas. Also, Ben Olinsky, senior vice president of Policy and Strategy at CAP, joins to outline the Center’s big ideas for states, including overtime, a state Earned Income Tax Credit, and “clean slate” legislation to automatically seal nonviolent criminal records.
