According to Executive Director of the Springfield Partners, Paul Bailey, "With the cuts to early education and care folks wont be able to go to work because they won't have anywhere for their students to get child care. I'm talking about hundreds of homes not being able to be weatherized and consequently people will have higher utility bills because they can't get their homes weatherized through the programs the federal government offers."
Bailey told 22News his organization believes the
sequestration cuts will disproportionately affect
lower-income and working poor families.
