Child care assistance fraud erodes Minnesotans’ trust in state government

Kim Crockett, Vice President and Senior Policy Fellow at Center of the American Experiment, released the following statement in response to today’s OLA assessment of internal controls for the child care assistance program: 

“Every day that bureaucrats ignore the fraud problems in the child care assistance program, Minnesotans’ trust in state government erodes further. It’s past time DHS starts doing its job, and it is entirely appropriate for the legislature to freeze funding for the program until they do.”
