Response To Address 6,000 Child Abuse Reports Delayed

A plan to respond to 6,000 child abuse reports that Arizona failed to investigate in recent years has been delivered to the governor. The plan's public release was expected Monday evening but has been delayed. A member of the Legislature's Child Protective Services oversight committee says the plan was sent to Governor Jan Brewer.
 
Department of Economic Security director Clarence Carter revealed the problems Thursday and was grilled by members of the Legislature's Child Protective Services oversight committee. He promised the plan to address the backlog by close of business.


Some Democrats have called on Carter to resign. But Brewer, a Republican, is supporting him. State police are reviewing how the mistakes happened.
