Democrat sworn in to replace Christie”

Democrat Phil Murphy on Tuesday will sign an executive order that promotes equal pay for women.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a law on Monday making it illegal to fly an unmanned drone aircraft after too many drinks, a spokesman said on the Republican's last day in office. Once in office, Murphy says he will focus on NJ Transit reforms.

"It is going to be a celebration of all that's right about our state and of our uniting to build a stronger and fairer New Jersey", he said.

New Jersey Transit's board held a controversial board meeting on Martin Luther King Day but didn't vote on purchasing a three-acre site on Hoboken's waterfront to use as a ferry maintenance terminal.

Murphy's wife, Tammy, and their four children joined him on stage as he was sworn in by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner at the grand War Memorial in Trenton. A National Guard artillery battery fired a 19-gun salute. Christie's successor, Democrat Phil Murphy, is to be sworn in on Tuesday. Democrats also control both houses of the Legislature.

Former Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver has been sworn in as lieutenant governor of the state. Oliver also will head of the state's Community Affairs Department and will become acting governor whenever murphy is out of state. The tweet featured Murphy, his wife and their children in a group hug.

New Jersey Gov. -elect Phil Murphy walks out of the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart following a prayer service for him, Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, in Newark, N.J. New Jersey's next governor is kicking off a series of events leading to his inauguration. The inaugural ball will then take place later Tuesday at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford.

Route 1 south is an alternate way to enter Trenton.
