Less than a week after Minnesota joined 10 other states in setting lofty zero-emissions goals, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Wednesday that New Jersey will get more ambitious than most — aiming for 100% clean energy by 2035 instead of 2050.

New Jersey will also look to follow California’s lead and require new cars sold in the state be all-electric in 12 years.
