A lawmaker who chairs the House Child and Family Law Committee said he was “blown away” to find out that the state bills parents who receive help from the state for their children, charging for everything from foster care to expensive incarcerations at the Sununu Youth Services Center.
On Sunday, the New Hampshire Sunday News reported the long-standing practice of billing families. Nearly 4,000 accounts are active, and three parents spoke of receiving bills they had not expected when they agreed to services such as Children in Need of Services (CHINS).
