STATE BUDGET-HUMAN SERVICES
(2007-06-07)
(wgvu) - STATE SENATE REPUBLICANS WANT TO PRIVATIZE
MORE OF MICHIGAN'S FOSTER CARE, ADOPTION AND JUVENILE JUSTICE
SYSTEMS IN NEXT YEAR'S STATE BUDGET.
REPUBLICAN SAY THE PROPOSAL WOULD SAVE MONEY IN THE NEXT FISCAL
YEAR, WHILE DEMOCRATS WORRY THE BILL WOULD RELINQUISH TOO MUCH
PUBLIC OVERSIGHT OF CRITICAL PROGRAMS AND COST MORE THAN 800 STATE
EMPLOYEES THEIR JOBS.
THE G-O-P-LED SENATE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE VOTED 11-TO-SEVEN
TODAY, MOSTLY ALONG PARTY LINES, TO SEND THE BUDGET FOR THE
DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES TO THE FULL SENATE.
THE PROSPECTS OF PRIVATIZING MORE OF THE FOSTER CARE, ADOPTION
AND JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEMS ARE IN DOUBT BECAUSE DEMOCRATS CONTROL
THE HOUSE AND GOVERNOR'S OFFICE.
