Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Van Drew joined Fox News' Martha MacCallum following the announcement that Governor Murphy's New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) approved two offshore wind projects in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

"In all of my time in public service I have never seen projects as destructive for the state of New Jersey as these massive offshore wind farms," said Congressman Van Drew. "Offshore wind hurts our supply chain, national defense operations, the environment, South Jersey's fishing industry, shore communities' tourism industry, and will cause energy rates to skyrocket. Governor Murphy and his administration continually moving forward with these projects, despite widespread opposition, underscores where his priorities lie. How about instead of sticking New Jersey ratepayers with the bill to line the pockets of offshore wind companies, the Governor works on lowering prices and improving the quality of life for hardworking New Jersey families."
