A few months ago, state legislators had a budget surplus and plans to improve public systems for children and families. Now they are faced with at least a $3 billion shortfall and the awful task of making deep cuts to critical services—and in a hurry. Riley Kitts joins us to preview the massive tasks legislators face in the next few weeks to build a new budget that starts July 1. Advocates need to speak up to ensure cuts are targeted and as equitable as possible—and that could be the foundation of massive and innovative renovation of the systems that ensure health, education, safety and family economic security.
