The State Must Pay Hospitals

March 21, 2016

State Rep. Kim Rose (D-Milford) issued a communication to Governor Malloy urging him to reinstate payments due to hospitals.

At the beginning of the month, the Malloy administration announced the suspension of about $140 million in payments to Connecticut’s hospitals due to a decrease in tax revenues.

“Since the first round of potential cuts was announced last September, I added my voice for the fulfillment of the state’s obligations to what had been already approved by the legislature,” Rep. Rose said. “The health care services offered to our residents by our area hospitals are critical to our communities.”

Rep. Rose added, “I will continue my work to defend my constituents and do what is right for the people we serve.”

The letter to the governor is attached.

Rep. Rose is serving her third term in the State Legislature.
