Kansas has plenty of reports on problems in its foster care system but needs a plan to fix them, according to members of a House committee.
The House Children and Seniors Committee voted Tuesday to create a foster care task force that will present a plan for improvements to the foster care system by January.
Rep. Jarrod Ousley, a Merriam Democrat, said the state needs to do more than study the foster care system.
“This task force is not for oversight. It’s for corrective action,” he said.
