The bill comes about six months after a coalition of disability rights organizations announced plans to lobby Connecticut legislators to close the facilities and redirect the state funding to provide residential services to an estimated 2,000 people with intellectual disabilities.
Sen. Terry Gerratana, D-New Britain, co-chairwoman of the General Assembly's Public Health Committee, said the Department of Developmental Services commissioner would have to return to state lawmakers with a plan for closing the six facilities or changing their purpose, while still meeting the needs of the approximate 485 clients they now serve.
The General Assembly's Program Review and Investigations Committee released a report in 2012 that determined Connecticut's dual system of public and private services for the developmentally disabled is costly and recommended the state eventually shift to a fully private system.
State employees and some family members and guardians have opposed the possible closure of Southbury Training School, which was built in the late 1930s and has been the subject of various legal actions over the years.
Dustin Diamond, the actor who portrayed Screech on the 1990s TV show "Saved by the Bell," went on trial Wednesday on charges that he stabbed a man during a confrontation at a bar, but the proceedings came to a screeching halt at the start after the prosecutor objected to a defense attorney's good luck message for his client.
Diamond, 38, is charged with a felony count of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and two misdemeanors — disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.
Testimony on Wednesday focused on the tavern's murky surveillance video, which doesn't show the stabbing.
According to their plea agreements, Purbaugh and Trainum opened Bear Creek Warehouse Co. in 2006.
Prosecutors say Purbaugh contacted the owner of a Pittsburgh scrap metal company, who agreed to buy 80,000 pounds of nickel.
Nevada senators have approved a bill that would allow students to use the state funds designated for their public education at a private school.
Students could use the state money deposited in the education savings account for tuition, textbooks and tutoring.
Republican Sen. Ben Kieckhefer said that lawmakers in both parties were strong supporters of education, and that the bill was designed to give parents a way out of sending their children to failing schools and to break cycles of "generational poverty."
Authorities say a 68-year-old inmate in a Nevada prison for securities fraud has died.
The Nevada Department of Corrections said Wednesday that John Englehart had been hospitalized five times since he was first sent to the High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs in May 2014.
The state Senate has approved a bill imposing stricter regulations on the Oregon's medical marijuana program as lawmakers get ready for the legalization of pot for recreational use.
Supporters of the bill say Oregon's minimally regulated medical marijuana program produces far too much marijuana, and much of the excess ends up on the black market.
