Disabilities provider cuts back services in northeast Nebraska

"There are reductions in services across the board, and when you get out in the D and D community as I have, I'm seeing it," Krist said.

Krist was one of the senators who fought to override the governor's veto.

Next session Krist plans to offer three bills to restore funding to developmentally disabled services and make sure the payments are adequate.

"If we take care of these people here and keep them at home, it will create a better atmosphere both for the human being and the family as well as the long term keeping them out of those facilities that we're trying not to put them in," Krist said.
