Hundreds of seniors attended my recent Medicare forums in Westport, Easton, Newtown and Fairfield.

And now I have good news.

Legislative leaders have reached a bipartisan agreement to adopt changes to the state budget to restore funding in full for the Medicare Savings Program in fiscal year 2018.

I believe we need to restore the Medicare Savings Program funding as quickly as possible to assist 113,000 low income senior citizens and disabled patients.

Gov. Malloy could easily call the legislature into special session immediately to make this happen.

But Gov. Malloy hasn’t done so.

That, to me, is puzzling and disappointing.

Therefore, I have joined my fellow legislators in signing a petition to schedule a vote on this fix as soon as possible.

A word of caution:

Although the legislature has reached an agreement, nothing is guaranteed unless there is statutory approval to restore the program’s funding.

I am committed to go into session and vote for passage.

Now, I want your feedback.

Please email me at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov with your comments.

Share your story.

I will personally deliver your email to Governor Malloy and his administration.

I will keep you apprised on this developing situation.
