Mismanagement--notably the death of a child--brought legal scrutiny, resulting in the agency's court-appointed administrative receiver. "Recent events at CFSA reveal their continued operational breakdowns and have convinced this subcommittee that such a tragedy could happen tomorrow or even today. Instead of standing by and waiting for the next innocent child to be harmed by abuse or negligence, we are demanding that the courts and the parties to the LaShawn case put an emergency plan in place that will immediately unite CFSA with the District Court Social Services Agency and other parties involved in child welfare cases in the District of Columbia, including the Metropolitan Police Department, the D.C. Superior Court, and the D.C. Corporation Counsel. This emergency plan also must return CFSA to the District of Columbia. This plan of action must be presented to Congress within 10 days of this hearing. On May 5, this subcommittee heard too many promises of cooperation and has seen very little action to correct the situation"--Page 1
