“Governor Murphy will never admit that the pressure is getting to him, but it absolutely is,” said Oroho (R-24). “That’s why he rushed to make this announcement weeks before he actually plans on lifting the school mask mandate. It’s our first ‘Give It Back’ victory.”

On Thursday, Senate Republicans launched the “Give It Back” initiative to give New Jerseyans an opportunity to tell Governor Phil Murphy in a unified voice to give back everything he has taken from them over the past two years, including parental rights to make mask decisions for their children.

Oroho said money, emergency powers, parental rights, vaccine choice, economic freedom, and safe streets are some of the things Governor Murphy has taken from New Jersey that he must give back.

“‘Give It Back’ is a powerful message that New Jerseyans can rally around to force Governor Murphy to give back everything he has taken from them over the past two years,” added Oroho. “We forced him to give back parental rights, now we need to keep the pressure on to get him to give back everything else.”

Thousands of New Jerseyans have already told Governor Murphy to “Give It Back” at http://www.giveitback.us.
