Just because the stopgap budget was passed and has helped fund a lot of institutions in the state, that doesn't mean that everyone is safe, as one Christian County program will still see some cutbacks. The Christian County Senior Citizens Center is looking at losing funding from both the state and federal governments that will affect the transportation and lunches the senior center provides. Gerry Mahr and Judy Gates from the Christian County Senior Citizens Center said that the cut backs could cause some issues with lunches and transportation and could cause the center to be open for only 4 days a week.

Mahr and Gates said they work together, especially during these times to make sure they don't bring much harm to people in the community who use their services.

The cutbacks won't happen until October 1st, and until then, the Christian County Senior Citizens Center will be operating normally. Mahr and Gates recently appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
