Advocacy Group’s CEO Sees New Issues With Kansas Welfare Law

KSAL StaffAugust 27, 2015

A child advocacy group’s leader says parts of a new Kansas welfare law appear to conflict with federal child care policies, potentially jeopardizing more than $40 million a year in federal funds.

Kansas Action for Children CEO Shannon Cotsoradis raised additional issues Thursday about the welfare law approved by legislators this year. She’s making her comments weeks after the state dropped a $25-per-day limit on ATM withdrawals with cash assistance cards following questions from federal officials.

Congress last year reauthorized a program providing federal grants for child care.

Cotsoradis says penalties in the new Kansas law for parents who don’t comply with regulations appear to run afoul of a policy in the federal reauthorization.

A spokeswoman for the state Department for Children and Families didn’t immediately return telephone messages seeking comment.
