A State Budget In The Red
Yesterday, State Comptroller Kevin Lembo officially certified a state budget deficit of $415 million. That’s $50 million more than the Governor Malloy's numbers and these come less than a week after a first round of budget cuts.
Those $123 million in cuts span the budget from education to social services. ...and it’s a sign of things to come.
Today, Where We Live, it’s a state budget roundtable with Kevin Lembo and the Connecticut Mirror’s state budget guru Keith Phaneuf.
We’ll also talk to Wade Gibson - he’s a senior policy fellow for Connecticut Voices for Children. Social services were hit by the initial cuts and could be hit even harder by the legislature in the future.
How will these budget cuts affect you?
