Governor Murphy Signs Pivotal Law to Combat NJ’s 20-Year Affordable Housing Crisis

New Jersey Joins National Affordable Housing Discourse with Clarified Town Requirements and Easements

According to Politico, New Jersey‘s Governor Phil Murphy just signed a big new law about making affordable housing. The affordable housing is a really important step because New Jersey has been struggling with this problem for 20 years. The affordable housing is meant to make things clearer for towns about how many affordable houses they need to build and make it easier to build them. This is happening at the same time as the whole country is talking about how to make affordable housing.

Amidst Controversy and Uncertainties, New Jersey‘s Affordable Housing Law Advances Amidst National Efforts and State-Level Experiments

But not everyone is happy about the new affordable housing. Some Americans worry it doesn’t think about important things like how building more houses might hurt the environment or make traffic worse. Also politicians in New Jersey can’t agree on what to do about affordable housing so there’s some arguing going on. But even with these concerns the new law shows that Americans are trying hard to fix the problem of not enough affordable housing. Now the focus is also on what the President Joe Biden is doing about affordable housing across the country. He wants to give Americans incentives and help so they can afford homes. Some states like California are trying new ideas to fix the problem. But in New York they’re still fighting about what to do. It’s tough but if everyone keeps working together there’s hope that we can make affordable housing for everyone.
