Texas Reverses Plan To Cut $15M From State Health Programs

State health officials are reversing a plan to cut $15 million from state health programs in an effort to satisfy a budget-cutting mandate. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission had proposed the cuts to women's health services and programs for low-income families and disabled children. But the agency announced on Monday it would make the cuts in other areas of the budget. Gov. Greg Abbott's administration had ordered state agencies in May to cut their budgets by five-percent in an effort to blunt the nearly five-billion-dollar deficit caused by the pandemic.
