The Honorable, The Legislature:
The biennial budget bill, 1983 Wisconsin Act 27, created s. 46.275, Community Integration Program (CIP) for Residents of State Centers. The intent of this program "is to relocate persons from the state centers for the developmentally disabled into appropriate community settings with the assistance of home and community-based services and with continuity of care. The intent of the program is also to minimize its impact on state employees through redeployment of employees into vacant positions." S. 46.275 (5m) requires the Department to submit a report to the Joint Committee on Finance and to the Chief Clerk of each house of the Legislature describing the program's impact during the preceding calendar year on state employees, including the Department's efforts to redeploy employees into vacant positions and the number of employees laid off.
For the period January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2002, we placed 17 center residents into the community. For fiscal year 2002, we reduced the centers' budget by $1,533,000 and 31.32 FTE as a result of CIP placements. For the period July 1, 2002 through December 31, 2002, we will make sufficient reductions in the fiscal year 2003 operating budget to reflect reductions for CIP placements. The Department was able to reduce positions and dollars for calendar year 2002 without employee layoffs. We do not anticipate layoffs in the current fiscal year 2003.
Sincerely,
Helene Nelson
