I would like to applaud Gov. Nathan Deal for his planned cash infusion into the Department of Family and Children’s Services. Case workers at DFCS have long been overworked and underpaid, resulting in their leaving. When they leave, cases that are not finished get passed on to a new caseworker. This slows down the process of getting a child into permanent placement. This is not good for children already in crisis.

Who could be more deserving of state revenues than these innocent children? Thank you Gov. Deal for caring about the kids.
