Governor Rell proposed getting rid of hazardous duty workers compensation for all state employees in her May 28 budget proposal. She has done it again in the budget cut document that she released the day before Thanksgiving. We stopped it in the spring and we can stop it again now.
Contact your State Representative and State Senator and urge them to block Governor Rell’s attempt to eliminate hazardous duty workers compensation for state police officers, protective services officers, correction employees and employees working at state institutions where workers are liable to get assaulted.
The Governor has also proposed the closing of Webster Correctional Institute in Cheshire. Let your state legislators know that when correctional facilites are over-crowded, it's not the time to close any!
