Loss of Funds Upsets Maryland Families

BALTIMORE -- Health Secretary Joshua Sharfstein will try to explain to the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday how the Developmental Disabilities Administration left $38 million unspent over the last two years while 6,500 patients sit on a waiting list for state funding.
None of those with disabilities or their caregivers are scheduled to testify at tomorrow’s hearing, but they are planning to give Sharfstein and DDA Director Frank Kirkland a piece of their mind at a town hall meeting that evening in Severna Park.
