WISCONSIN - Disabilities advocates say Gov. Scott Walker's budget cuts could be devastating to programs that help Wisconsinites live independently.

Changes to the popular Family Care program and other cuts could save the state $33 million over the next two years. But questions remain as to how programs for people with disabilities would work.

Claire Yunker, spokeswoman for the Department of Health Services, says the changes are aimed at preventing abuse in the existing system and creating a more coordinated care regimen.

But Daniel Idzikowski, executive director of Disability Rights says his organization was not consulted about Walker's plan. He says it would drastically restructure Family Care, the program that administers personal care and long-term care services to elderly, disabled and injured Wisconsinites through Medicaid.

At about 5:30 p.m., six or seven juveniles drove to a house on the 900 block of Jefferson Street. One person fired a BB gun at juveniles who were on the porch.
