CSEA Legislative and Political Action Department
2013
 
Executive
 
Budget
 
Proposal
 
CSEA
 
Memorandum
 
on
 
O.P.W.D.D.
 
Over
 
the
 
past
 
30
 
years
 
New
 
York
 
State
 
has
 
been
 
reducing
 
its
 
responsibilities
 
in
 
providing
 
services
 
for
 
the
 
developmentally
 
disabled
 
and
 
pushing
 
them
 
to
 
private
 
not
for
profit
 
providers.
 
This
 
has
 
created
 
a
 
patchwork
 
of 
 
providers
 
in
 
the
 
private
 
not
for
profit
 
sector
 
that
 
have
 
little
 
accountability
 
and
 
public
 
oversight.
 
A
 
major
 
theme
 
from
 
last
 
year
 
was
 
the
 
hailed
 
creation
 
of 
 
a
 
 juvenile
 
 justice
 
center
 
to
 
strengthen
 
oversight
 
and
 
accountability
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
prevent
 
and
 
punish
 
those
 
who
 
abuse
 
and
 
neglect
 
individuals
 
with
 
developmental
 
disabilities.
 
The
 
further
 
privatization
 
of 
 
state
 
operated
 
services
 
proposed
 
by
 
the
 
2013
2014
 
executive
 
budget
 
will
 
make
 
it
 
that
 
much
 
harder
 
for
 
the
 
 justice
 
center
 
to
 
not
 
only
 
do
 
its
 
 job,
 
but
 
it
 
will
 
increase
 
their
 
business
 
as
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
care
 
will
 
suffer
 
greatly.
 
This
 
blatant
 
move
 
to
 
eliminate
 
state
 
operated
 
services
 
for
 
the
 
developmentally
 
disabled
 
not
 
only
 
 jeopardizes
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
care
 
for
 
our
 
most
 
vulnerable,
 
it
 
removes
 
the
 
state
 
from
 
critical
 
care
 
choices,
 
administrative
 
prerogatives
 
and
 
oversight
 
of 
 
this
 
vital
 
public
 
service.
 
In
 
addition,
 
it
 
eliminates
 
quality
 
middle
 
class
 
 jobs
 
from
 
local
 
communities.
 
It
 
is
 
a
 
well
known
 
fact
 
that
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
care
 
is
 
greatly
 
affected
 
by
 
the
 
consistency
 
of 
 
the
 
care.
 
A
 
regular
 
recognizable
 
caregiver
 
who
 
can
 
establish
 
trust
 
and
 
dependability
 
is
 
critical
 
to
 
a
 
better
 
quality
 
of 
 
care
 
as
 
well
 
as
 
a
 
higher
 
quality
 
of 
 
life
 
for
 
the
 
developmentally
 
disabled
 
individual.
 
Private
 
not
for
profit
 
providers
 
pay
 
substandard
 
wages,
 
provide
 
little
 
or
 
no
 
benefits,
 
have
 
unregulated
 
work
 
environments,
 
and
 
are
 
commonly
 
a
 
“starting
 
point”
 
for
 
other
 
 jobs
 
and
 
opportunities.
 
The
 
turnover
 
rate
 
for
 
staff 
 
at
 
private
 
not
for
profit
 
providers
 
in
 
the
 
developmentally
 
disabled
 
field
 
tops
 
40%,
 
an
 
unacceptable
 
level
 
when
 
it
 
comes
 
to
 
the
 
care
 
and
 
quality
 
of 
 
life
 
for
 
the
 
developmentally
 
disabled.
 
Furthermore,
 
the
 
continued
 
assault
 
on
 
the
 
public
 
sector
 
workforce
 
through
 
privatization
 
schemes
 
has
 
been
 
proven
 
time
 
and
 
time
 
again
 
to
 
be
 
ineffective,
 
costly,
 
and
 
regretful.
 
Taking
 
middle
 
class
 
 jobs
 
away
 
from
 
experienced,
 
dedicated,
 
and
 
caring
 
state
 
employees
 
and
 
replacing
 
them
 
with
 
private
 
not
for
profit
 
providers
 
who
 
fail
 
to
 
pay
 
their
 
direct
 
care
 
workers
 
a
 
living
 
wage
 
hurts
 
local
 
economies
 
and
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
life
 
for
 
all
 
New
 
Yorkers,
 
not
 
 just
 
those
 
receiving
 
care.
