Budget cuts hinder children with disabilities
Disabled children and their families shouldn’t have to jump through hoops for any type of state-funded care.
These kids need the state’s help, and we should be able to provide for them. But lawmakers tightened the budget and, with it, reduced access to life-altering services.
A $350 million Medicaid budget cut went into effect last December. The cut sliced off funding for pediatric therapy, potentially affecting as many as 60,000 children and their families.
