The fight continues over whether to close Virginia's training centers.
A federal judge approved a settlement Thursday between Virginia's government and the United States Department of Justice.
The agreement calls for closing four of Virginia's five training centers, including the Central Virginia Training Center in Madison Heights.
Training centers are facilities that house people with severe disabilities. Families of people living there have been fighting to keep the facilities open.
Parents like Martha Bryant, who has twin sons at the Central Virginia Training Center, plan to use a provision in Thursday's settlement that allows families to keep their loved ones at the training centers.
"They did not plan for us to stay. They planned for us to leave," said Bryant. "If you take choice into consideration, they must plan for us wanting to stay."
The only Virginia training center that is currently slated to stay open is in Chesapeake. Bryant and other families plan to lobby Virginia legislators for funding to keep other facilities, like the Central Virginia Training Center, open.
