Osborn Correctional Closes Units, DDS’ Five-Year Plan,
& UConn Student Fees to Rise on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – This Friday at 7 p.m., Connecticut Network viewers will recap a week where Governor Malloy announced the closure of four units at the Osborn Correction Institution, the Department of Developmental Services held a public hearing on its five-year strategic plan and the UConn Board of Trustees signed-off on fee increases for students on the latest episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

With the state's total prison population being down 13% since 2012, Governor Dannel Malloy announced the closure of four housing units at the Osborn Correctional Institution in Somers this week. Meanwhile, back at the Capitol, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) held a hearing where the public gave testimony on the agency's five-year strategic plan. Citizens took the opportunity to relay concerns about the state's proposal to privatize 40 group homes currently caring for DDS clients.

 

In the state's education realm, the State Board of Education met this week and focused their attention on the future of Connecticut's Technical High School system. The UConn Board of Trustees approved student fee increases for Fall 2017 and the Board of Regents for Higher Education considered a contract extension for CSCU President Mark Ojakian.

 

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.

CT-N to Recap Historic Election Day with Connecticut Votes 2016

Wednesday, November 9 at 7 p.m. on CT-N & CT-N.com

 

Hartford, CT – Rather than getting caught between channels during an historic and widely-televised Election Night, Connecticut citizens can catch up on the races hitting home the following day with the Connecticut Network's (CT-N) post-election wrap-up Connecticut Votes 2016 on Wednesday, November 9 at 7 p.m. on both television and CT-N.com.

 

Connecticut Votes 2016 will be led by CT-N's long-time moderator and award-winning journalist Diane Smith, who will recap an historic day as voters across the country turn out and then tune in for a highly-anticipated Election Day that will determine our nation's next President and the political balance of the U.S. Congress. Smith will host in-studio guests – including political experts and legislative leaders – as she reviews the results affecting seats in the Connecticut General Assembly, as well as Connecticut's delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.

 

Connecticut Votes 2016 continues CT-N's long-standing tradition of providing citizens with results from Election Day and in-depth, educational analysis of the legislative issues that are expected to be brought up during the upcoming session at the State Capitol. The hour-long program will air at 7 p.m., on both CT-N and CT-N.com, and will be available for OnDemand viewing at CT-N.com following its original broadcast.

 

Throughout Election Night, CT-N plans to pilot test the state's new online reporting system for election returns by providing on-screen results as numbers come into the Office of the Secretary of the State. Viewers can tune in throughout Election Night and the following morning to view the unofficial numbers and then receive a complete wrap-up of Election Day by joining Diane Smith for Connecticut Votes 2016 November 9th at 7 p.m on CT-N.com and CT-N.com.
