Given declining tax revenues and the inevitable end to the influx of federal stimulus funds, the state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) is seeking input on “potential efficiencies, cost-saving initiatives and partnership opportunities that will preserve core services to the fullest extent possible without additional expenditures.”
EOHHS Legislative and Policy Affairs Director David Martin sent out an email saying that the budget hearings scheduled for early October had to be canceled until the full extent of the state revenue picture can be understood.
Also in the email, a questionnaire was distributed to be a guide for any future budget testimony, or to be included as a supplement to any testimony, submitted when the hearings are rescheduled.
Please take a look at the questionnaire and return answers to the Alliance so that we can submit as many comments as possible to EOHHS. If you have any questions, would like more information, or need any guidance on the questions, please contact us.
