Rally to pass state budget draws crowds to Hartford

Posted September 7

— A rally meant to urge lawmakers to pass a state budget drew crowds of people to the capital city on Thursday.

The rally was organized by a coalition of nonprofit community-based human service groups.

It kicked off at the state capitol building at 11 a.m.

The groups called on lawmakers and Gov. Dannel Malloy to end the budget impasse.

It's been nearly 70 days that Connecticut has been operating without a state budget.

The group said it's affected funds to vital programs that help the state's most vulnerable residents.
