NJ SpotlightóOp-Ed--Jís Early Intervention System Remains Robust and Ready to Help

Hotline service helps parents, caregivers get answers and help early on, often a critical consideration when dealing with young children

For tens of thousands of New Jersey children facing developmental disabilities and their families, the difference between a healthy, happy life could be a phone call.

Experts have long known that the sooner a youngster with developmental challenges is evaluated and treated, the better the likely outcome. And in New Jersey, a hotline service is available to help parents and caregivers get answers and connect with critical services early on. Another program will help families and disabled youth as they grow and mature.

NJ Spotlight--How Can New Jersey, Other States Rescue Underfunded Pension Systems?

NJ Senate President Sweeney says officials need to be honest with the public and state workers about the problem

State public-employee pension systems across the country are facing a combined $1 trillion in debt, and many states, including New Jersey, arenít getting much help on the investment side these days thanks to stubbornly low interest rates. Medical breakthroughs are also testing the math of pension systems as retired workers are now living much longer.

But experts participating in a panel discussion yesterday on state-pension problems that included New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester) werenít ready to throw in the towel and say states should just give up and let their pension systems go bust.
