Funding Cut in Iowa

Iowa has suspended a state program that helps children with hearing loss. The Hearing Aids and Audiological Services Program will no longer give out the $190,000 in state funding that it has in the past. About 3000 children in Iowa schools have hearing problems. There is a movement in the state to force insurance companies to pay for audiological services. About a dozen states have already created such a law.
