State Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk, Ranking Member on the Senate Committee on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, praised the agreement to restore funding to the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities. She was a co-sponsor of the measure to restore the funds.
“These cuts would have devastated the services that our most vulnerable residents and their families rely on,” Tkaczyk said. “I am proud to have fought for full restoration throughout the budget process, and am thrilled these cuts have finally been restored.”
