The state ranks 50th in transportation infrastructure. The environment, specifically renewable energy and water quality, are particularly poor in New Jersey and should be top priority for the state government.

Recommendations
The state should take care to improve its infrastructure and improve the environment. Additionally, the state has issue with debt to GDP, high taxes and low credit rating. in times with low resources available, New Jersey should consider partnerships with neighboring states that share similar outcomes, such as Massachusetts and New York.
