FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Sen. Martha Scott March 23, 2007 Phone: (517) 373-7748 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.” #### Senator Martha G. Scott represents the 2nd Senate District, which includes areas of Detroit and the cities of Hamtramck, Harper Woods, Highland Park and all of the Grosse Pointes. She serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee and as Minority Vice-Chair of the Agriculture, Economic Development, and Department of Human Services subcommittees. She is also a member of the Capital Outlay subcommittee.
