The state attorney general’s office announced that New Jersey would receive $500,000 as part of a settlement over data breaches affecting credit reporting company Experian. The breaches occurred in 2012 and 2015, compromising the personal information of millions of consumers nationwide. During the 2015 data breach, T-Mobile contracted with Experian to perform credit checks on potential customers. Both companies have agreed to improve their security practices.

Transportation improvements are coming to Camden. A $36.5 million infrastructure project is planned for the city, which will improve a truck route and improve access to the Port of Camden. Officials say the project will eliminate truck traffic on residential streets. Improvements will also be made to mitigate flooding in the area. Funding comes from a $25 million federal infrastructure grant, as well as state money.
