The Morris County Office of Emergency Management in partnership with Morris County Sheriff James M. Gannon and the Morris County Sheriff's Office is monitoring the NJ State Government Shutdown. On Friday, June 30, 2017, Governor Chris Christie signed Executive Order 228 declaring a state of emergency and maintaining that essential state government services continue operating for the people of New Jersey, as the failure to act on a Fiscal Year 2018 State Budget by yesterday’s constitutional deadline forces the closure of state government. Included among the essential functions that will remain in operation: State Police, state correctional facilities, key child welfare services, state hospitals and treatment facilities, NJ TRANSIT, and operations linked to the health, safety, and welfare of the public, including certain environmental and health monitoring. The state closure also will NOT impact the State Lottery, casinos and racetracks. For details on non-essential services that will be closed as well as operations that will remain open, check the website of that department or agency. Links to many major state agencies and a brief description of services impacted are provided in the official Press Release at www.nj.gov/governor/news/news/552017/approved/20170630f.html. ...
