Murphy says asking about salary histories perpetuates the wage gap between men and women by allowing employers to offer lower salaries to women.
"There is a lot of work to be done, and it won't be easy, but I am optimistic that, with Gov. Murphy and Lt. Governor Oliver at the helm, we will accomplish great things for the people of New Jersey".
Murphy, 60, a Democrat who was sworn in Tuesday on the same family Bible used by President John F. Kennedy, will sign an executive order that promotes equal pay for women, the Associated Press reported. A former ally pleaded guilty and two former aides were convicted in the political revenge plot, which targeted a Democratic mayor who wouldn't endorse Christie's second gubernatorial bid.
The new governor thanked Christie for his public service and highlighted that his battle against the opioid epidemic is "worth applauding and continuing".
Some of the issues Murphy mentioned affect the state directly, such as opposing the recent tax reform or federal interest in drilling for oil off the Jersey Shore.
Murphy, who like Kennedy grew up in MA, also served several years under the Obama administration as ambassador to Germany.
"For those of you who are debating whether to stay in New Jersey or leave, or perhaps, considering moving here from elsewhere, I commit to you - many years from now, when you look back, planting your flag in New Jersey will have been one of the smartest decisions you ever made", Murphy said. While Christie is a friend and ally of Trump's, Murphy built his first run for elected office around undoing the Trump administration's efforts on health care, immigration and taxes.
A former Democratic New Jersey state lawmaker has been sworn in as lieutenant governor.
With Murphy's inauguration, New Jersey joined a handful of states where Democrats control both the governor's mansion and the legislature.
During last year's campaign, Murphy said he would "fully fund" schools and public workers' pensions and spend more on public transportation, but it's unclear how he'll accomplish all of that. Oliver also will head of the state's Community Affairs Department and will become acting governor whenever murphy is out of state.
The state should work to provide tools for small businesses, Murphy said, instead of delivering massive tax breaks "to a handful of select and connected big corporations that frankly don't need them in the first place".
