Legislators get an earful: “stop playing”
By Alexandra Gutierrez, APRN
Friday for the first time since the regular session adjourned in April, a legislative committee took verbal testimony from the public.
The House Finance committee allotted three hours for input on the state operating budget, and more than 80 people spoke. The meeting opened with a series of former foster children coming to the microphone, and asking for more funding for social workers at the Office of Children’s Services.
