Advocates battle for medical interpreters in Connecticut
Hartford Courant, February 19, 2008
Advocates for state Medicaid patients who need interpreters say they worry that cuts in Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell's budget proposal could jeopardize access to crucial services and information. Rell's budget proposal recommends eliminating $4.7 million that had been set aside for the translation services in the 2008-09 budget. A coalition advocating for the translators said that about 22,000 patients statewide who speak a total of 65 languages need the service.
