Carlucci Launches Petition Calling for Restoration of Cuts for People with Developmental Disabilities

Press Release from Senator David Carlucci:

With residents and agencies now fearing the potential fallout over possible budget cuts to our most vulnerable populations, Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) today announced a grassroots call to action to convince Governor Cuomo to join with state legislators in fully restoring the proposed 6% cuts to the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, or OPWDD.
In doing so, the Senator has launched an online petition encouraging residents to demand that $120 million dollars in state-aid be reinstated to OPWDD, which in total would actually amount to $240 million dollars with a federal match included.
