Rep. Plans To Introduce Measure To Make CPS A Separate Agency
As lawmakers reconvene at the state capitol for the start of their new session, a state representative on the front lines of the Child Protective Services problems says she’s planning to introduce legislation to make CPS a separate agency.
Kate Brophy McGee explains what that would accomplish: “Put someone directly in charge of it as opposed to the director of DES, who oversees innumerable complicated functions."
McGee is a member of the CARE team which is addressing the 6,000 cases CPS failed to look into. She’s also suggesting legislative oversight of CPS to get a better understanding of how the agency deals with children and families as they go through the system.
