BOC committee votes/actions on BET's FY 2016-17 Proposed Budget

Dear RTM Colleagues,

I am copying below for you the full prepared speech I had intended to give to the body tonight. As you will read, it was meant to give every single RTM member, committee and district member alike, ample time to read the BOC's direction and Motions with the upcoming May budget appropriations. These items were thoroughly debated at the committee and the resulting actions and Motions reflect the 11 districts (D1 was absent) perspective. Please feel free to contact me at 203-861-9425 if you have any further questions or comments.
