The CT Senate has passed S.B. 1088 – a bill to advance the closure of STS and the 5 regional centers – on a 25-10 bipartisan vote. The bill will require that a plan be completed by December 15, 2015 that will include a financial analysis and a time line for closure.
The bill awaits action in the House of Representatives and would require the signature of Governor Malloy.
This bill does not consider the needs of the severely disabled and elderly residents of STS and the regional centers and does nothing to benefit the 2,000 I/DD individuals waiting for residential placement. If an honest and accurate analysis is performed, the cost to move this population will be found to be high and the move would require many many years. Moving all of these individuals into the community would also worsen the waiting list crisis in Connecticut.
Closing STS is not a solution. STS supporters in Connecticut are encouraged to contact their representatives immediately to urge a “No” vote for this bill.
Please be assured that if a plan to close STS and the regional centers is adopted, we will vigorously oppose it in court.
