February 26th, 2017 Dialogue Show:  

On this week’s show, Steve Kotchko’s guest is Eileen Healy, representing Connecticut’s Independent Living Centers.  She tells why Governor Malloy’s budget effort to take away all state funds could be disastrous for these facilities that help the disabled.  Healy discusses how important the centers are to the disabled population, and whether the legislature might be persuaded to restore the funding.  If not, she discusses whether they could find funding from private sources.
