Southern Voice (Atlanta) (01.09.09) - Wednesday, January 14,
Georgia lawmakers expect to slash some $2 billion from the
state's $20 billion budget in the current session of the
Legislature. The state AIDS Drug Assistance Program for low-
income patients is already slated for cuts, said Jeff Graham,
executive director of the gay rights group Georgia Equality.
"I don't believe that there are any programs that will avoid
scrutiny, and the ADAP program is one where the cuts have
already been proposed by the Department of Human Resources,"
he said. If the cuts are finalized, 120 to 130 ADAP clients
may face disruption of their access to AIDS drugs, Graham
