Here's your daily look at five stories we're following:

1. Rutgers board: New Jersey legislators are slated to consider a proposal today that would add more political appointees to Rutgers University's main governing board, and questions about the legality of the measure have arisen.

2. Commuter woes: Commuters on Interstate 95 are facing new construction work and lane configurations this morning between Girard and Allegheny avenues. And this weekend, a potential strike could shut down SEPTA's Regional Rail lines. Those traffic headaches come on top of an all-summer closure of an Interstate 495 bridge in Wilmington and a closed PATCO train track over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

3. Immigrant driving cards: Lawmakers in New Jersey are scheduled to discuss whether to issue driving cards to some undocumented immigrants in the state.

4. Paulsboro library: A groundbreaking ceremony is set for today for a long-awaited expansion of the the Gill Memorial library in Paulsboro.

5. Sarah Murnaghan, a year later: Today marks one year since Sarah Murnaghan, a dying 10-year from Newtown Square, received adult lungs after a highly publicized fight over organ-donation rules.
