NEW JERSEY -

Governor Phil Murphy announced a new spending plan he hopes will better help fight the states opioid crisis.

On Tuesday, April 3rd, at the Rescue Mission of Trenton Murphy announced his proposal for a $100 million spending plan, which is roughly half of what former Governor Chris Christie pledged last year.

Murphy claims the Christie Administration only spent $90 millions of those funds and added that he does not plan to use his new funding on advertising.

The proposal comes as Murphy's $37.4 billion budget begins moving through the Democrat-led legislature.

A new budget must be in place by June 30th.
