ROOSEVELT - New York State is cutting $90 million in programs designed to help the developmentally disabled.

According to administration officials, the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, located in Roosevelt, has already been forced to cut staff, employee benefits and community trips as a result of the cuts.

Participants in the programs say that they are upset by the cuts because they rely on the programs to help them.

Assemblyman Harvey Weisenberg is attempting to pass a bill that would restore all of the cuts.
