“There are devastating funding cuts to community-based providers in the executive order released today, although some would be mitigated by the proposed mini budget, which would be good news. However under both scenarios, thousands of people across the state who rely on vital human service and other programs would be impacted.

“We continue to believe that budget solutions should be long term, and include conversion of state services to the community, where $300 million can be saved over the next five years and used to prevent damaging cuts.”
