Chair Serpa Raises Questions About Management at DCYF and UHIP

GoLocal reported this week that there was little public outrage after 10 babies were died in state care in the last 26 months — and that over 110 budgeted positions at DCYF have gone unfilled.
On Wednesday, Serpa said on GoLocal LIVE that the committee would continue to press on the DCYF issue, which she said was hindered by the “window dressing” of DCYF employees at the recent House hearing who boasted of cost-savings for the department while children.were going unchecked - and dying.
Serpa also talked to the federal government looking for UHIP audit information — which Serpa said the committee had just asked for from the state, calling the information they had gotten so far as “suspect.”
