OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- At least three more state agencies-- the Health Care Authority, the Department of Human Services and the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services-- will face budget cuts because of inaction at the Capitol.
The cuts were announced by Governor Mary Fallin on Facebook through an unusual post on her official page Monday night. It shows only a portion of what appears to be a letter notifying agencies they'd be receiving less allocated money.
The post appeared to show that the mental health department would be receiving $75 million less. Fallin previously called cuts to agencies draconian and said she would veto any budget plan that included cuts to agencies.
