This article found on The Morning Call website on April 20, 2012 talks about the impact of Corbett’s proposed budget cuts and what it could mean not only for specific programs in the Lehigh Valley, but also what a loss of these vital programs would mean to those who rely on those services.  There is also comments discussing the concerns of those at the county level who will be faced with having to figure out what to or not to cut and the feeling that they are left doing Corbett’s dirty work so to speak if his proposed budget is approved.

This is a lengthy article, but it has a lot packed into it and hits on many different perspectives.  It should be noted that while this article is specific to Allentown area, the concerns raised seem to be echoing across the entire Commonwealth.
