Murphy Hands Down Newest Round of Job-Killing Regulations on Struggling Restaurants 


The Murphy Administration has declared that restaurants and other establishments with outdoor tents must apply for a Uniform Construction Codes permit by Monday.

Restaurants have been one of the hardest hit industries during the COVID pandemic. Governor Murphy is constantly changing requirements for the industry, including mandating 25% capacity for indoor dining.

“It is unconscionable that Governor Murphy continues to hand out new rounds of job-killing regulations on struggling industries,” said NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt. “This is the least business friendly Governor in the history of New Jersey. When the COVID pandemic clears, the affordability crisis will be worse than ever thanks to Murphy’s weak leadership and selfish priorities. We must vote him out in 2021.”
