Lawmakers resume work to protect children

AUGUSTA - Maine lawmakers spent much of Thursday afternoon discussing several bills aimed at improving the state's child protective services.

 

Legislators approved two of those proposals, while still deciding the fate of the other three measures.

 

These measures are the governor's response to deficiencies uncovered in the system following an investigation triggered by the deaths of two young girls within the past year.

 

Earlier this month, Gov. Paul LePage proposed five bills targeting child protective services reform. Public hearings on the bills were held Monday.

 

The governor's action came on the heels of a legislative investigation of the policies and procedures of the state's child protective services.

 

"The system is broken and we have to find a way to fix it sooner than later because kids lives are at stake," Sen. Bill Diamond, D-Windham, said.

 

The measures, with a total price tag of nearly $20 million, would fund more staff and supervisors as well as up-to-date computer software for case management.

 

"It's really comprehensive reform. Every piece kind of feeds into the other. To really try to make sure that our caseworkers are not being overburdened with such a huge caseload," Sen. Eric Brakey, R-Auburn, said.

 

Democrats and Republicans agree that the bills are just a first step toward correcting deficiencies within the state's child protective service.

 

Lawmakers say one of the biggest parts of the system in need of repair is foster care system and that one of the problems the state is facing is a shortage of foster care families.

 

Diamond said the new laws turn the child welfare system in the right direction.
