DHS audit bill to be heard this week

Posted: Updated:


Rep. Ron Peters, R-Tulsa, pushed for an independent audit of the state Department of Human Services on Monday.

"Completely reorganizing the Department of Human Services, as Representative Morrissette proposes is a very huge undertaking," said Peters in a press release. "To assume in advance, without any study of the matter, that we know the best course of action is na├»ve at best, and foolhardy at worst." said Peters, chairman of the House Human Services Committee.

"This is a very serious issue, and we need to move cautiously to make sure we don't take steps that could make matters worse," he added.

Legislation calling for an audit of DHS passed out of the Human Services committee last month and will be heard on the state House floor later this week.
