Are you concerned about Community-Based Services for Yourself or a Family Member with a Developmental Disability?


Please read the two documents below written by the DD council in regards to the FY15 State Budget! Please take action and contact your legislator most urgently!

I write to urge you to reconsider the process by which you are deliberating yesterday’s proposed cuts to the FY ’15 Vermont State budget. Announcing a public hearing on a matter of such importance with scarcely 24 hours’ notice is inconsistent with the transparency and thoughtful debate that is the hallmark of the Vermont legislature.

Talking Points Regarding Budget Cuts for FY 2015
The Shumlin administration proposed more than $31 million in cuts to the state budget yesterday. If adopted by the Joint Fiscal Committee, the rescission will hit programs in health and human services -- including Developmental Services --hard. Advocates who wish to provide written or spoken testimony can do so at a public hearing today, August 12 from 3:45 to 6 pm at the State House.
