Gov. Johanns Discusses Task Force Findings

After more than three months and 26 meetings, the governor discusses the findings of his child protection task force.

Amongst those recommendations, the most expensive would involve the addition of 99 workers in the Protection and Safety Department of Human Services, and an across the board pay increase of 20-percent for current employees.

As of now, the governor has made no mention of how the legislature plans to fund the changes, which are estimated to cost more than $7 million.

Gov. Johanns called the findings of the task force a top priority for the legislature, adding that he is confident they will find a way to finance it.
