Thursday, March 24, 2005

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Gov. Matt Blunt has recommended eliminating the $227,000 program that funds private and public research on Alzheimer's and related disorders in the 2006 budget year. House lawmakers considering the cut have recommended to the House Budget Committee the state set aside $500 for the program to at least keep it listed in the state budget. More than 110,000 Missourians suffer from Alzheimer's.
