NJ NEWS COMMONS: HERE'S HOW MUCH EVERY DISTRICT GETS IN STATE FUNDING

Gov. Phil Murphy has released the new district-by-district state aid numbers for the 2021 budget. About two thirds of the state's K-12 districts (64%) will get more money this year, and almost every other district will be worse off. The state changed its school aid formula in 2018. The team at NJ.com has set up an easy tool to discover how each district fared — search yours here. (NJ.com)

MURPHY SLAMS HUDSON TUNNEL AND GATEWAY PLAN

Yesterday, U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said the right way to manage the century-old transit tunnel under the Hudson River is not to build a new one, but to repair this one — to start "rehab work in the near term."

AMID #METOO, TRAIN TRIP TO WASHINGTON MORE SUBDUED

The "Walk to Washington" train ride is an annual tradition in state politics. This year, the so-called "schmooze express" took on a different tone: it felt less like a frat house on wheels. That meant no hard liquor, more security officers, and a well-advertised hotline to report misconduct. The new rules were put in place after NJ.com's reporting revealed a culture of harassment and misogyny at political networking events in New Jersey. (USA Today Network NJ / Politico)

WHAT REENTRY LOOKS LIKE: WRONGFULLY CONVICTED MAN

This video news segment by Michael Hill is just excellent reporting; it's worth watching. It features a man who was released from prison after 25 years. He was wrongfully convicted alongside another man. It follows his footsteps as he visits office after office, trying to find housing and more. One option requires a resident to be homeless for 90 days — and prison doesn't count.  (NJTV)
