Brophy McGee Suggests Separating DES Programs

December 20, 2013

State lawmakers return to the Capitol next month and when they do, one of the bigger issues with which they will be dealing is Child Protective Services, after the revelation of more than 6,500 un-investigated reports of child abuse and neglect.

State Rep. Kate Brophy McGee is the co-chair of the legislature’s CPS oversight committee and a member of the governor’s CARE team. She wants to separate CPS and some related programs from the Department of Economic Security. She said some of her colleagues are talking about a sense of deja vu.
