CT non-profits say they can solve state's budget problems

Some non-profit organizations say they can help solve Connecticut's budget problems by taking over more state-operated programs.



Experts say this is an idea that appears to be gaining steam at the state capital.



The Connecticut Community Nonprofit Alliance unveiled a proposal yesterday to shift many services such as substance abuse treatment programs from the state to the private sector. 



The group says its plan would save $1.3 billion over three years.
