The tri-state area has launched an all-out pizza war. Welcome to 2021. On Tuesday morning, Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey tweeted out that his state is the "pizza capitol of the world" in light of National Pizza Day. The self-proclaimed title comes after a Twitter campaign used the slogan to describe the Garden State. As anticipated, government officials from Connecticut decided to respond back to Gov. Murphy's claim - with @CTSenateDems tweeting back him "no way." Gov. Murphy has yet to respond to the Connecticut Twitter account, however, Murphy went to blows with Gov. Ned Lamont on Twitter last year as Lamont attempted to defend Connecticut's pizza supremacy from New Jersey. Gov. Lamont has also yet to respond to New Jersey's claim. The new drama with Gov. Murphy comes off the heels of an attempt to make pizza the official state food of Connecticut. Last week, two New Haven legislators - Rep. Patricia Dillon, 92nd District and Sen. Gary Winfield, 10th District - proposed House Bill 5656 for the 2021 session. The bill, which is one sentence long, attempts "to recognize the contribution of pizza to the state's cuisine and economy." If the bill is passed, pizza would be the first food-based item to be recognized by the state. It is one of more than 2,000 bills that have been introduced for the 2021 legislative session, which is expected to last until June. As expected, the news of the legislators' actions began to ripple through pop culture, with the likes of "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert commenting on the bill. "[Pizza] would replace the current state food, which is anything on the country club menu that you can eat through clenched teeth," Colbert said on his show. "This is a little thirsty; you have zero cuisine of your own, so you - who sit right next to New York and New Jersey - are trying to steal pizza as your official food? Why? Because you have one town that makes good pizza?" Colbert went on to call Connecticut "New York's Canada." Joining Colbert in the criticism of the bill was \u00a0journalist Dan Rather, who took to Twitter to air his opinion. "With all due respect, CT, but I think you'd come in third in the Tri-State Area, never mind them folks out in Chicago. (But hey, happy to be proven wrong)," he tweeted. There is no telling when the current debacle will cease over pizza superiority in the tri-state area. New York governor Andrew Cuomo has not commented on the recent bill proposed, however, things will most likely not be the same in the tri-state culinary world should Connecticut adopt House Bill 5656.
