Lincoln State Senator Kathy Campbell tells us that it’s important for legislative oversight of the state’s child welfare system.
“Do we have an evaluation process, are we measuring outcomes for children, is this the best direction that we can take?”
By the time lawmakers convene this Wednesday, most of the responsibility for ensuring the safety and well being of the state’s wards will have been turned over to private contractors. Senator Campbell is running unopposed for the chairmanship of the Health and Human Services Committee. She says she would like senators to make that committee responsible for monitoring child welfare reform.
