Parents, mental health workers warn of impact of House budget plan
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
State lawmakers got an earful Saturday, as parents of children with disabilities and mental health workers laid out the potential impact of the state budget.
Among those testifying was William Granger of Pineville. His 1-year-old son, Easton, needs constant care to stay alive. Easton suffers from Tracheomalacia, a condition that makes it difficult to breath.
"These kids could not be cared for in a regular day care," Granger told the Senate panel in charge of the budget.
