Indiana Scrambles to Cover FSSA’s One-Billion Dollar Shortfall

A billion-dollar budget shortfall projected by Indiana’s Family and Social Services Administration could mean that programs that help disabled children and adults could get cut.

Some lawmakers have argued that the money to fix that needs to come from the state’s budget surplus.

State Senate President Pro Tem Rod Bray says no to that idea.

Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch wants the FSSA to be audited.

The legislative session ends in mid-March.
