Jay Nixon http://wkms.org en Nixon Opposes Blind Healthcare Cuts http://wkms.org/post/nixon-opposes-blind-healthcare-cuts <p>Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is opposing budget cuts to a health care program for the blind. The House budget committee proposed to cut the state&rsquo;s current 28 million dollar program and replace it with a new 6 million dollar program. The proposed cuts are expected to go in front of the entire House next week. Nixon is urging representatives to support the current program which covers healthcare costs like prescriptions and doctor visits and serves over 2,000 blind Missourians.</p> Tue, 13 Mar 2012 19:45:13 +0000 Rose Krzton-Presson 17244 at http://wkms.org
