The next round of state budget cuts may be setting Oregon up for even more trouble, according to the social service groups whose clients will be seeing less money to pay for services.
From the AARP to Area Agencies on Aging, to the Service Employees International Union, they say the governor’s recommendation to cut human services by 15 percent will cost federal matching money and trim jobs, at a time when the state needs both.
KBOO’s Leah Yanoff reports, in collaboration with Oregon News Service.
