Funding for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) would be cut by 26 percent in Fiscal Year 2012 under a proposal announced by the House Appropriations Committee last week, according to LSC.  They note, the Committee bill proposes a $300 million budget for LSC—rolling back LSC funding to a level not seen since 1999.

How would this affect local legal services?  Hard to say.  A significant drop in IOLTA funds over the past two years already has local indigent legal service providers making some difficult choices.
