In this 4-minute video, Tom Fiorentio, president of the Arc of Connecticut board of directors, talks about state employee overtime and other issues related to the state’s funding for care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
I am the president of the board of directors of the Arc Connecticut, the state’s oldest and largest advocacy group for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). I am writing to applaud the efforts of several key legislative leaders for the part they are playing to preserve funding for people with I/DD despite the State’s increasingly difficult budget situation.
I want to serve as at least one voice who saw something good come from the General Assembly’s revision of Gov. Dannel Malloy’s irresponsible budget proposal.
