HARTFORD --Governor Malloy's $50M midyear cut in aid to cities and towns is hitting them hard. Money they need for local schools, money they had budgeted for, is no longer there.
Leaders are also worried about his plan to revise the formula for doling out state aid. It would give poorer municipalities a lot more, and richer ones, a lot less.
They warn that layoffs of teachers and staff could result.
