Illinois House Republicans Call For Change of Leadership For DCFS

Illinois House Republican lawmakers calling for a change in leadership at the Department of Children and Family Services. 

 

A state audit released last week found that the DCFS failed to comply with reforms aimed at increasing child safety passed in 2019. 

 

Illinois state Representative Deanne Mazzochi details the case. 

Rep. Mazzochi calls on Governor JB Pritzker to take action. 

For State Representative Steve Reich, it’s about Gov. Pritzker fulfilling his promise. 

State Representative Tom Weber says there’s nothing current director Marc Smith can do but step aside.

The DCFS has responded. “The Department of Children and Family Services has taken aggressive measures to improve the services and care provided to youth in care during the past three years.”
