Money Being Released For Families That Adopted Special Needs Children

Indiana Democrats are applauding the governor's decision to release money to families that adopted special needs children. The release of the the money  in the face of a lawsuit claiming promised adoption subsidies had been denied to nearly 15-hundred families. State Senator John Broden of South Bend issued a statement saying the Pence administration made the right decision. The state had cut roughly $240 million dollars from the Department of Child Services budget in the last five years. The cuts started during the recession, but continued even after tax collections improved.
