Child care funding was one of the main topics at the Monroe County Legislature budget meeting Thursday night.

There wasn't much support shown in favor of the cuts for the proposed 2014 budget. Those against these cuts are asking for the county to not only restore the $1.3 million in proposed cuts. But they want an increase of $600,000.

"These programs will save money in the long run. We know that. I'm going to be living here for a really long time. I don't want to have to pay for these kids to go through the foster care system, to go through CPS investigations, to end up in jails frankly. And we do have evidence that these programs do work to help prevent that," said Dr. David Topa, Pittsford Pediatrics.

The budget will be voted on Tuesday.
