HARTFORD, Conn. – The leading Democratic state representative on the legislature’s Human Services Committee on Tuesday reiterated a bipartisan commitment by lawmakers to restore some cuts Gov. Dannel P. Malloy made to social service programs to cover a state budget shortfall.

State Rep. Cathy Abercrombie, D-Meriden, told a group of social service providers and clients gathered in Hartford Tuesday that their advocacy is not falling on deaf ears.

“I really do want to take this opportunity to thank my leadership, the governor and my colleagues on the other side of the aisle that are coming together to try and figure this out,” she said, referring to ongoing budget negotiations between Malloy’s administration and legislative leaders from both parties.
