SRS Provides Lawmakers With List of Budget Cuts

The Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services today (FRI) provided lawmakers with a list of budget cuts the agency will make. This week a legislative committee requested the information. Some lawmakers have criticized how SRS is handling a $43 million reduction in state and federal funding. To save money, SRS has proposed closing 10 local offices, reducing salary costs and delaying computer purchases. SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki (SIDE-leck-ee) says he’s satisfied with how the agency is handling the cuts.

The list also includes $8 million dollars in Medicaid savings. The agency is currently working on ways to make the health care program more efficient.
