A federal judge says the state will not cut adoption subsidy payments to families adopting children from foster care. The judge has issued a temporary restraining order He’ll hold a hearing later on whether the cuts approved by the legislature this Spring are legal. Without the restraining order, the cuts would have gone into effect in ten days. The next hearing will be September 8th. State officials say about 2,000 children will be affected by the cuts, but they think the cuts will save the state $12-Million.
