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.” 

Kim Crockett served as corporate counsel to a national bank and had a long legal career in commercial real estate law after receiving her B.A. in philosophy from the University of Minnesota and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Her research, writing and advocacy focuses on government unions and labor law, public pensions, the Metropolitan Council, and the impact of the Refugee Resettlement Program on the state and local budgets. Federalism and the rule of law are the framework for Kim’s policy work.
