We have looked over the GA Conference committee budget.
The family support funding cuts went from 100% elimination to 50% reduction and now to 35% reduction. They are going to fund 125 NOW waiver slots and 100 COMP waiver slots. Intensive family supports will also be partially funded.
It is not ideal. But it is not as catastrophic as it could have been.
It took a team effort to fight this and stop the hemorrhaging. We are not going to stay mission accomplished. But, we are thankful that it is not as awful as it could have been.
There was a huge team effort that went into this fight. To everyone who helped, signed and shared the petition, called your lawmakers, spoke with reporters and spoke up, thank you so much for all you did. Sadly the fight is never over, and we don't even think we can truly celebrate this. But we can catch our breath a small bit.
