New Jersey Governor Signs Code of Conduct Executive Order for Self, Future Governors
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 2A, which places limits on gifts and defines personal relationships for the governor of the Garden State.
This order requires the governor to disclose gifts received from anyone he has met in the past three years before being inaugurated.
“Anyone we’ve met since then is going to be subject to complete disclosure above the threshold of whatever the gift levels are,” said Murphy.
Any relationship established before then is considered pre-existing and is exempt from the order.
The executive order puts New Jersey in line with federal standards.
