State budget cuts home health care

Kansas City, MO – Among the mental health programs likely to be cut this year in Missouri is one that brings help into the homes of people with developmental disabilities.

Others say declining state revenues left Missouri lawmakers no choice but to make the cuts, and that Kansas families endured similar reductions earlier this year without catastrophic effect. As part of our series on the mental health budget cuts, KCUR's Frank Morris reports on the possible outcome in Kansas City, of cuts to mental health home care.
