Three hours into a second day of hearings, the House Health & Welfare Committee is still hearing difficult and wrenching stories about the impact on disabled kids and others when their treatment is reduced or cut off. This as the panel has before it rules to implement budget cuts that do just that, trim treatment hours for disabled children and adults and for the mentally ill. It's a somber and quiet hearing.
