DHS Commissioner: Hike Unjustified

Tulsa, Okla. – There is more fall-out from the Department of Human Services' decision to increase co-payments for child care subsidies. That is the amount low-income families must pay before DHS help begins.

DHS commissioner Steven Dow is adamantly opposed to the decision. He says the DHS is sitting on a 15-million dollar cash reserve.

He is also questioning the legality of the move saying proper procedures were NOT followed.
