Bill Proposes Follow-Up After Transfer From New Jersey Developmental Centers

TRENTON — The state would be required to assess how well disabled people are faring after their transfer from two institutions the Christie administration has begun closing, under a bill the Assembly Human Services Committee approved today.
The Woodbridge Developmental Center and the North Jersey Developmental Center in Totowa are slated to close by 2017, in an effort to reduce New Jersey's over-reliance on large institutions for people with intellectual disabilities. They are among seven centers operated by the state.
