Here's your daily look at five stories to follow:
1. Christie tries to get past scandal: In his State of the State speech, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said "mistakes were clearly made" in the George Washington Bridge lane closures scandal, but tried to move past the controversy and addressed a number of policy issues, including education and property taxes. One difficulty for Christie in moving on from Bridgegate, one expert says, is that the governor "has no control over the narrative at all." But a Quinnipiac University poll being released today shows that his approval rating and credibility are still relatively strong.
2. Concussion settlement: A $765 million agreement between the NFL and former players who sued over concussions is being put on hold, as a federal judge says that amount might not be high enough to cover payments to all eligible retired players. The two sides say they will work together to give the court more information about how the figure was reached.
3. Nurse waits for ruling: A ruling on Barbara Mancini's motion to dismiss a felony charge of aiding suicide is expected any day now. The Philadelphia nurse was charged with giving prescription morphine to her terminally ill 93-year-old father.
