A House committee voted Tuesday to recommend 77 new positions for the Division for Children, Youth, and Families, adding to a growing consensus in the State House to rapidly grow the agency amid high caseloads.
But the approach differs from one pushed by Gov. Chris Sununu, who has advocated for a smaller expansion.
In a 16-0 decision, the House Children and Family Law Committee voted in favor of Senate Bill 6, a bill proposed by Sen. Jon Morgan that would add the 77 positions over two years, at a total cost of $8.6 million.
