Budget Cutting Scenario Would Reduce Array Of State Services - Russell Blair and Daniela Altimari, Hartford Courant

Resolving Connecticut's latest budget crisis could lead to fewer services for rape victims and children with mental illness, more mosquitoes, longer wait times at the DMV and an end to rifle salutes by the Connecticut Honor Guard at military funerals. In response to a letter from Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's budget chief, state department heads have submitted detailed plans about what a 10 percent cut in funding to their specific agency might look like. The proposals are all drafts, but they offer a glimpse at the level of services that may face the ax as the governor and lawmakers work to close a projected $1.3 billion budget shortfall in the next fiscal year. http://www.courant.com/politics/hc-connecticut-budget-cuts-plans-20161117-story.html
