"It is most prudent to use those stimulus dollars on one-time projects that won’t cause future budget problems.

"With revenues declining and state agencies absorbing across-the-board cuts each month, we fear that the financial problems of the senior nutrition program are just the tip of the iceberg with regard to critical services across state government,” Sund said. "The bigger challenge in the months to come will be funding not just senior nutrition, but veterans’ services, education, health care, public safety and a variety of other vital programs.”
