Issues at the Beatrice State Developmental Center are getting better thanks in part to the Developmental Disabilities Special Investigative committee. The committee will continue it’s work thanks to a vote to move forward from the Unicameral. Senator John Harms of Scottsbluff is in full support.
“In talking with some of the staff there from Beatrice they are very excited about what’s happened, they are no longer beat down, they feel good about themselves, they feel good about what’s taking place.”
After numerous problems were reported at Beatrice State Developmental Center and certification was pulled, the committee was formed to make improvements at the center. The loss of certification at BSDC meant a loss of millions of Federal dollars for the center.
