Illinois Republicans Call For Hearings Into State DCFS

Illinois Republicans are calling for hearings into the state Department of Children and Family Services. The House GOP wants to know how DCFS director Marc Smith will address deficiencies with the state agency. The DCFS has come under fire in recent weeks following three incidents, including the death of a caseworker. Smith has also been held in contempt of court over allegations of failing to provide adequate housing for minors in three recent cases.
