After two child welfare caseworkers were attacked on the job in Pennsville, state lawmakers say it's time to approve Leah's Law, which would offer greater protection to those at the Department of Children and Families.
New Jersey Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel says that the Department of Environmental Protection did not protect the environment in New Jersey when it agreed to a settlement with Exxon for contaminating refinery sites.
Sen. Ray Lesniak and a group of environmentalists have asked a Superior Court judge to let them legally intervene in the Exxon settlement case. The company has agreed to pay $225 million to the state of New Jersey for environmental damage, but opponents say Exxon owes close to $9 billion.
