People with special needs may take a step forward in receiving the services that could foster additional independence, thanks to a recent legislative initiative. The NJ Assembly Human Services Committee extolled an initiative to help people with developmental disabilities access the services afforded to them. On October 9, 2014, the Committee, chaired by Assemblywoman Valerie Huttle (D., Bergen), approved A-2841, which if passed by both Houses of the State Legislature and signed by the Governor, will enable people with developmental disabilities access those services.
