Murphy overturns NJ Turnpike Authority’s American Flag Ban

Governor Phil Murphy announced this afternoon that he has overturned, “for the time being,” the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s ban of American flags hanging for highway overpasses.

“The Turnpike Authority was raised in an interview I did this morning. I didn’t like what I heard,” said Murphy in his Tuesday afternoon COVID press conference, according to Patch. “We are the greatest nation on earth, even though we are far from perfect, and our flag represents that nation. And after I got off the call, we spoke to the team and at least for the time being, the Turnpike Authority has suspended doing that, until we find a good way forward.”

“I think we should be proud of our flag even though we have a long way to go to perfect our union. I stand with the flag,” the governor continued. “So, they’ve suspended that for the time being until we can find a good way forward.”
