Before the stopgap budget was passed, the Christian County Senior Citizen's Center thought they were going to have to make cutbacks on their transportation, which would then make cutbacks on lunches. Recently they have learned because of the stopgap budget, the center will be able to provide full rides from now until the end of the year. Gerry Mahr Director of the Senior Center said the center is now able to provide rides 5 days a week and that helps a lot since many of the people who go can't drive.
Judy Gates, Director of the Nutrition Program, joined in with Mahr, saying if one of them gets part of their funds cut, at the start of next year the other is also likely to experience cuts.
Mahr and Gates appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
