Gov. Jan Brewer said she has abolished Child Protective Services as we know it and created a new division charged with child safety. In her 2014 State of the State address, Brewer called on the legislature to make the new division a standalone agency. She also called for education and tax reforms.
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.
