State of the State RI

Guests: Patricia Serpa, Chairwoman-House Oversight Cmte. rep-serpa@rilegislature.gov
Host: Darlene D’Arezzo Time: 30 minutes
Representative Patricia Serpa is Chairwoman of the House Oversight Committee. She discusses its role and purpose and that of the committee members, which is to look at and evaluate the performance of government agencies and in this instance especially underperforming ones. Although she discusses many aspects, the focus during this interview is UHIP; DCYF and public transportation contracts, which have all been terribly underperforming. In the case of DCYF, some children have died while under state care. In a recent report, The Child Advocate has also called attention to DCYF’s poor performance.
