Budget deficit forces job cuts at Kentucky mental health care provider

Central Kentucky's state-backed provider of mental health care is eliminating more than 60 jobs, 30 of them currently filled, as a first step in reducing a projected $6 million to $7 million operating deficit. Bluegrass Regional Mental Health-Mental Retardation Board also must share a management contract for the state's new Eastern State Hospital in Lexington.
