The Appropriations Committee recommends maintaining a separate Department of Higher Education. Funding for the University of Connecticut, Connecticut State University, the Connecticut Community College System and Charter Oak State College represents the restoration of 2009 rescissions. At the UConn Health Center, recommendations include additional funding of $10 million to recognize anticipated fringe benefit costs and $500,000 to continue funding for the Connecticut Health Information Network, an initiation which integrates state health and social services data within and across the Health Center, the Office of Health Care Access and the Departments of Public Health, Mental Retardation and Children and Families.
