On February 8, 2006, President Bush signed into law the 2006 federal budget bill (called “The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005,” or S. 1932). The bill narrowly passed the United States Senate and House. The 2006 budget decreases federal funding for a range of services that help children who have been abused or neglected. [Updated February 17, 2006]
