It now heads to the governor's desk.

Lampitt, Benson, Vainieri Huttle, Tucker, Wimberly & Downey Bill to Help Residents with Disabilities Access Services AdvancesLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Pamela Lampitt, Daniel Benson, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Cleopatra Tucker, Benjie Wimberly and Joann Downey to increase awareness of the application processes for programs and services available to New Jersey residents with developmental disabilities cleared the Assembly, 72-0, on Thursday.

"This legislation will help ensure that residents of New Jersey who have developmental disabilities can get the services they need."

Legislation Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto and Assemblywomen Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Pamela Lampitt and Elizabeth Muoio sponsored to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Planned Parenthood's founding gained approval Thursday in the General Assembly.
