Marilea Lewis Discusses Proposals to Overhauling Child Protective Services

The Texas Legislature is looking at several proposals that would overhaul the Child Protective Services Division, including one to make the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services a standalone agency rather than a department under Texas Health and Human Services. “I believe that a standalone agency that is subject to review by the public and doesn’t have the cloak of immunity that CPS does in many instances might become much more responsive,” Judge Marilea Lewis told Dallas Fox4 News.
