About 7,000 severely handicapped people in Orange County will be left with no financing for their care and shelter if a state budget is not signed by Friday, officials announced Monday. The private, nonprofit Developmental Disabilities Center of Orange County, one of 21 centers statewide that distribute state funds for the severely handicapped or mentally disabled, would be forced to close Friday because state law does not authorize IOUs for private agencies, center officials said.
