NJ Spotlight--Federal Autism Study Shows New Jersey’s Rates on the Rise

Diagnosis of disorder jumps 19 percent among eight-year-olds since 2012

New Jersey has significantly more children diagnosed with autism than other states — and rates are still on the rise. But experts agree, that while concerning, these numbers also reflect a high level of parental awareness, a concentration of skilled providers, strong system to document diagnoses, and robust network of community and school services to support families in need.

The Record--Murphy ally's interview with Record accelerates feud with Trenton Democrats

On day 100 of his term, Governor Phil Murphy celebrated with fellow Democrats.

On day 101, Murphy and fellow Democrats resumed their intraparty fighting.

An interview Brendan Gill, a close Murphy ally, gave to this column on Wednesday ignited the latest skirmish in the Trenton Democrats' internal cold war.

Gill said that New Direction New Jersey, a non-profit group he helped form to promote Murphy's agenda, plans to launch a media campaign later this spring to pressure Democratic lawmakers to support Murphy's $34.7 billion budget.
