Cuts Protested

October 1st, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

As state lawmakers get ready to cut more than a billion dollars from the state budget, some groups , like the developmentally disabled say cuts to their program are short sighted and will result in the state actually spending more in the long run. Debra Dowds, Exec Director of the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council calls any cuts shortsighted. People are going to have to move to a more restrictive setting, and often that setting is outside the home, where they were getting very good care, and some of these people are worried about the care they are going to get in these other settings.

Lawmakers begin their budget cutting session Wednesday in Tallahassee.
