Porter reappointed to rehabilitation services

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced the reappointment of his 11th commissioner Thursday, saying Amy Porter will return for a second term as commissioner of rehabilitation services.

Porter was named two years ago to lead an agency created by merging programs formerly based in the Department of Social Services: the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services, the Board of Education and Services for the Blind, the Commission on the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, the Workers’ Rehabilitation Program, and the Driver Training Program for People with Disabilities.
