Senator Cavanaugh from the Nebraska Unicameral discusses oversight of a child welfare services contract.
On this episode of Oversight Matters I am joined by State Senator Machaela Cavanaugh from Nebraska. Senator Cavanaugh has been a leader on legislative oversight in the Nebraska Unicameral. This is a unique legislature, with only one chamber and nonpartisan elected state senators. Today we focus on a child foster care contract in Nebraska. The oversight on this contract was conducted by Senator Cavanaugh and a team of other concerned Senators and staff. Our conversation takes several twists and turns, from initial concerns about the contract, to embezzlement, to what might happen next to better ensure children in need can receive essential care and support.
