Connecticut Buckles Up After White House Report & Feds Denied Illegal Immigrant Housing on Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting at 7 p.m. Friday, Connecticut Network viewers will learn how the condition of the state's roads rank amongst the rest of the forty-nine states on this week’s episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

On Monday, the White House released a report listing Connecticut as having the worst roads in the entire country. According to the report, 41% of the state’s roads are in poor condition, almost double the amount of New York's. The release of the report comes at a time when President Barack Obama is pressuring the United States Congress to replenish the Highway Trust Fund, which is projected to be insolvent by the end of August. Capitol Report will discuss the report and provide Governor Dannel Malloy's reaction to Connecticut’s low ranking.

 

This Friday's episode will also cover the decision made by the Governor’s administration to deny a federal request to house up to 2,000 illegal immigrant children from Central America. According to U.S. Board Control, nearly 60,000 unaccompanied children have been apprehended at the border since last October. Federal officials, who requested the use of the vacant Southbury Training School for housing, were denied by the Governor’s administration, citing a lack of clean, livable space at the facility.

 

Capitol Report will also examine this week's special meeting for the Board of Regents for Higher Education as they consider merit raises for certain state college and university employees, as well as the State Medical Examining Board's discussion on the need to better educate providers about prescription drug misuse.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N's online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.
