DPA Files Appeal Motion
By Angela Hatton
Frankfort, KY – The Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy has appealed a Franklin Circuit Court judge's decision earlier this week to deny the department a hearing on funding. DPA lawyer Sheryl Snyder says the judge denied a hearing because the department has not yet completely depleted their resources. The DPA estimates they will run out of funding in late April or early May. A House bill now pending in the Senate would provide four-point-seven million dollars to the DPA. Snyder says that will be enough to get the department through the end of the fiscal year, June 30.
