A program that helps kids coming out of foster care could be eliminated unless the senate comes up with an additional $200 million the budget. Elizabeth Gill reports.
As senators debated a $177 million dollar cut, Democratic Senator Pat Dougherty fought to keep a program for kids that hit hard times transitioning out of foster care.
Dougherty says the program is designed to help the kids become self sufficient.
The senate agreed to include the program on what they are called the B list.
Programs on the B list would recieve funding if the senate is able to generate an additional $200 million for the budget.
