As Deficit Emerges, State Agencies Asked to Reduce Spending on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting at 7 p.m. Friday, Connecticut Network viewers will recap a week that included news about projected state budget deficit of $100 million on the latest episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

Last week, Governor Malloy's budget office reported that the state is facing a $100 million deficit, immediately resulting in requests for reduced spending from Connecticut state agencies. Capitol Report will discuss the projected deficit, as well as the Governor's support for the approval of $267 million in state bonding allocations.

 

This Friday's episode will also cover the latest plans that were presented to the state’s Health Care Cabinet, which include efforts to improve mental and behavioral health services for Connecticut children. The State Elections Enforcement Commission (SEEC) also discussed budget cuts, public financing and investigations related to this past Election Day and members of the Victims' Rights Enforcement Advisory Commission, which met again this week, debated new issues facing some crime victim families in the state.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N's online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.

 

All episodes of Capitol Report are available online, in keeping with the network's seamless integration of telecast and interactive content.  Visit www.ct-n.com/CR for OnDemand viewing, annotated with synopses and links to related gavel-to-gavel coverage.

CT-N Goes Inside the World of Advocating with ADVOCACY: Turning the Gears of Democracy

 

Hartford, CT – Connecticut citizens looking to create change within their own town, state or country have a new source to turn to when learning about how to advocate. The Connecticut Network (CT-N) has produced a four-part education program entitled ADVOCACY: Turning the Gears of Democracy as part of its Civics Engagement Series.

CT-N's own Diane Smith walks the viewer through the program which explains what advocacy is, what an advocate's rights are, effective advocacy strategies and how to use social and traditional media to help spread awareness about a specific topic or movement. Using personal insights from citizens, lawmakers and lobbyists, Turning the Gears of Democracy provides viewers with in-depth commentary that demystifies and breaks down the advocating process into easy-to-understand steps.

Advocacy experts who reflected on their experiences include Susan Campbell of Partnership for Strong Communities, Former Connecticut State Representative Pam Sawyer, Betty Gallo, a Lobbyist from the firm of Gallo & Robinson, and Phil Ouellette, Owner of Eli Cannon's restaurant in Middletown. Filming locations included the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, Connecticut’s Old State House in downtown Hartford, Portland High School, Eli Cannon's in Middletown, Mills Memorial Apartments in Meriden and The Lyceum in Hartford.

ADVOCACY: Turning the Gears of Democracy can be viewed at the Connecticut Network's website at www.CT-N.com and by clicking on "Participate" at the top of the page. The four-part program can also be found, viewed and shared on CT-N’s YouTube channel located at www.YouTube.com/user/ConnecticutNetworkTV.

Turning the Gears of Democracy is the third installment of CT-N's Civics Engagement Series, which is produced to educate the people of Connecticut on the nuances of civic engagement and the positive impact that one person can bring to our democracy.
