No money likely in state budget for pensioners

Local

With just about a week until the state’s budget is due, former St. Clare’s Hospital workers will likely not get any money set aside. 

Lawmakers say this is due largely in part to lack of commitment on the part of the Diocese. 

The Diocese saying in a statement:

Bishop Scharfenberger continues to pursue all avenues with regard to possible funding to assist St. Clare’s retirees in some way. It’s an ongoing process.

The state budget is due April 1st.
