CBA President
 

President Donald Trump's 2018 proposed budget includes the elimination of funding for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The LSC promotes equal access to justice and is the single largest funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans in the nation.

CBA President Monte E. Frank has written an article published on the news site, The Connecticut Mirror. President Frank discusses the impacts that these cuts will have, not only in Connecticut, but across the country, including, "veterans denied rightfully earned benefits, women trapped in abusive relationships, parents seeking custody of their children, and families facing wrongful evictions or foreclosures."
