Connecticut Executive Order Cuts Funding to Drop-In Centers That Help People Living With HIV/AIDS

July 7, 2009

In Connecticut, representatives from several social service agencies gathered in front of the Governor's mansion on Monday to oppose an executive order that "has cut funding to the half dozen walk-in centers around the state" that assist people living with HIV/AIDS to "zero," WTNH.com reports. Gov. Jodi Rell (R) is operating with executive orders because there is no state budget agreement. More than 10,000 state residents would be affected by the cuts, according to WTNH.com. Representatives from some of the centers said they would be forced to close without the state funding. "Simply put, there are no other agencies or funding sources that can, or will, provide these services," Shawn Lang of CT AIDS Resource Coalition, said (Davis, 7/6).
