Rallies were held throughout Wyoming Thursday, including in Sheridan to drum up support for people with developmental disabilities.
Workers and clients from Easter Seals lined up along Burkitt Street Thursday morning calling attention to proposed changes in the state's developmental disabilities program.
Health officials say 600 people are on a waiting list and the proposal would cover more people and offer more services.
But those protesting say the changes sound like budget cuts.
"It calls for a lot of natural supports. Some individuals don't have those. Their families aren't able to financially or physically provide the support levels that we need," said Easter Seals case manager Brandy Nielsen.
"The staff jobs. We're trying to keep the staff jobs and a place to live and keep my supplemental security income," said Easter Seals client Bart Tippets, who has a developmental disability.
Other rallies in Wyoming included one in Cheyenne at the Capitol.
A Wyoming Department of Health spokesperson says nothing proposed is a program cut.
