CCNJ RESPONDS TO GOVERNOR MURPHY’S FY2022 BUDGET ADDRESS
There is no question that the last year has tested our resilience as a people and an industry. The business of chemistry in New Jersey, deemed essential by the federal and state governments, safely worked to produce the products essential to our safety and public health. Even with all the challenges presented by 2020, chemicals remained New Jersey’s largest export, representing $8.9 Billion or 24.3% of exports from New Jersey to the world. If the last year has taught us anything, it is the value of being able to manufacture essential chemicals and products locally to meet consumer demand and support our restart and recovery efforts.
