In Hopkins County, the cuts will mean a 12 percent reduction in funding. It's a move the county attorney says will cause layoffs, and could ultimately slow the delivery of child support to families.
Officials say each Hopkins County case worker handles 600 to 800 cases. And one of those people will be gone by the end of the month.
Hopkins County Attorney, Todd P'Pool, says the Commonwealth doesn't have its priorities straight. He says those cuts are putting critical services to the community and children at stake.
