State Reps. Charles Ferraro (R-117) and Pam Staneski (R-119) said they strongly opposed the majority party’s state budget proposal during the Friday the 13th legislative special session. In a press release, they called the plan a “fake” budget.
“This budget reflects the wrong-headed priorities of the majority party,” Ferraro said. “They decide to go after the most vulnerable in our state by eviscerating our state hospitals with a $130 million cut. They also slash state mental health and addiction services – while the state is in the midst of an ongoing opioid addiction crisis in our state.”
