Parents, providers try to block cuts for disabled

DENVER — Parents and care providers are trying to block proposed deep cuts in state spending for developmentally disabled and autistic clients.

Colorado lawmakers cut $8 million for the group beginning July 1.

Lawmakers say the cuts were needed to reverse fast-growing spending for behavior therapy, day programs, dental care and other services.

Opponents tell the Denver Post the cuts will end up costing the state more money through increases in emergency-room visits, hospitalizations and other social costs.
