          SENATOR SCOTT’S REPONSE TO REPUBLICAN BUDGET CUTS

“It's a sad day for Michigan when lawmakers urge families and single parents to work,
yet cut the daycare, the transportation and the services they need. Lawmakers say they
want to protect our children yet they cut kinship care, choosing instead to privatize
foster care and juvenile justice services. The federal government continues to take from
the poor and give to the rich. And my Senate Republican colleagues are following their
agenda. The saddest days are when we treat some different than others. This is
certainly one of them.”
