PA Budget Impasse Hurting Seniors

The budget impasse in Harrisburg is hitting services for seniors in Pennsylvania very hard. In some counties, state funds account for 80 percent or more of the budget for human services. According to Ray Landis, director of advocacy for A-A-R-P Pennsylvania, vital care for seniors is already being cut -and some may stop completely. Some counties have already used up their reserves and are borrowing money, laying off staff and may still have to close senior centers. So far, no senior centers in Beaver County have announced such plans.
