Fears budget could kill hatchery

There are fears Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget for 2013-15 could spell the end of the Kensington Hatchery.

The forums on flyaddict.com include a discussion and links to the page in the proposed budget that details the cuts, including savings $150,000 toward closing the massive deficit by closing a hatchery. The Office of Fiscal Analysis, a nonpartisan advisory group, projects the deficit at $138.6 million, twice the Malloy administration’s projection of $64.4 million, according to the CT Mirror.

Page 3 of the forum on flyaddict.com includes names and contact info for members of the committee involved in the decision so fishermen can speak out before it’s too late.
