On Tuesday, January 18, the same day Washington state legislators released a budget proposal, a Flash Mob danced at the Washington State Capitol building to support the Disability Lifeline program.
“House Democrats released a budget proposal for the current fiscal year that would restore certain funding to schools and the poor that Gov. Chris Gregoire had proposed reducing or eliminating.
Specifically, the plan would retain the state Disability Lifeline, which provides cash and health care for unemployable disabled people. It also would provide funding for a children’s health-care program and maintain levy equalization money that helps poorer school districts keep up with wealthier ones.
