Connecticut has a new Governor and 41 new legislators. With projected deficits for years to come, decision makers will need to make tough choices about the future of our state.
In spite of the fiscal challenges our state is facing, there is much to be hopeful about. With a new Governor and so many faces in the legislature, our community needs to seize the opportunity to use our collective voice to make sure sure that people with I/DD are included in the vision of a better Connecticut.
