MIDDLETOWN - Sen. Len Suzio on July 26 visited MARC at 124 Washington Street to join with area residents in calling for an end to the state budget stalemate. (On the web: www.marcct.org.)
Suzio noted that the failure of state lawmakers to pass a budget is negatively impacting non-profit providers and their clients by forcing the closure of day programs.
Suzio’s petition urging state lawmakers to pass a budget is posted at www.SenatorSuzio.com.
"Vital services for thousands of our neediest citizens throughout Connecticut are being suspended and slashed due to the failure of the legislature to pass a budget," Suzio said. "Local budgets are also in limbo. Our message is simple: We want legislative leaders to do their jobs and pass a Connecticut budget."
Suzio is endorsing the Connecticut Senate Republican budget solution which protects state funding for non-profit providers like MARC.
