Senate Republicans said the Murphy administration hid behind the boogeyman of terrorism to deny requests for information critical to formulating public health policy during a global pandemic when thousands of New Jerseyans were dying.

“While the administration was warning of the potential threat if terrorists learned how many masks and gowns New Jersey’s hospitals and nursing homes had on hand, thousands of our residents were dying from COVID-19 due to the lack of preparedness at those facilities.
