$108 M in muny aid saved, at the expense of 1,000 more layoffs

Roy Occhiogrosso, Gov. Malloy’s top advisor, just told reporters that the municipal aid reduction proposed by the governor has been saved by lawmakers. The result will be that instead of 6,500 current employees getting layoff notices, about 7,500 will be laid off by September 1. Plus, 1,000 vacancies will not be filled.
