Jefferson City, MO (KSDK) - Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is under pressure to spare a program to help people with eating disorders.
Despite a 2010 law that created the Missouri Eating Disorder Council, it hasn't been formed because it's never been funded.
The governor cut funding for the council out of the 2012 budget.
Lawmakers put the money back in for the 2013 budget, which takes effect July 1.
Nixon is expected to decide this week whether to cut the new budget.
So what does this mean for the people and families who live with eating disorders?
Annie Seal, Vice President of the Missouri Eating Disorders Association Board, and the mother of a child who struggled with eating disorders, joined us live on NewsChannel 5 at 5 p.m. to talk about the funding.
