The Wyoming Department of Health has been given the task of cutting some 24 million dollars from the Developmental Disability waiver program.
The goal would be redistribute that money to try and get services to nearly 600 people who remain on the waiting list. The waiver program provides money to deliver services to people with disabilities.
Those who object to the cuts say that the legislature should put more money into the system. Senator Charles Scott of Casper says that request was denied, but could come up again in the future.
