Nonprofits ‘greatly concerned’ about prospect of emergency budget cuts

Printer-friendly version

The CT Community Nonprofit Alliance, which has been pressing Lamont to pump more resources into the hundreds of agencies that deliver the bulk of state-sponsored social services, also questioned why emergency cuts are being considered even as state budget reserves are projected to grow.

“We appreciate that the governor is managing the state budget prudently, with an eye on the future,” Gian-Carl Casa, president and CEO of the alliance, wrote in a statement. “But we are greatly concerned that with a de facto $300 million surplus, that there is any discussion of emergency budget cuts. We urge Governor Lamont to reject proposals that would cut essential services.”
