HARTFORD – The ARC Connecticut will be hosting its annual Family Hearing Day at the State Capitol on Wednesday, February 21st. According to State Representative Jay Case (R-63), this is a unique opportunity for families, children and adults with intellectual and developmental disorders to express their needs to state lawmakers.
“The ARC does a great job of organizing its membership to come to the Capitol on this important day. As a result of their advocacy, the legislature is provided a full public hearing to focus on the needs of these individuals. It is important to listen to what each person has to say when testifying because that is the true test of whether or not services are being delivered adequately,” explained Rep. Case, who also serves a co-chair to the legislature’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Caucus.
