The state has charged CPS to protect our children against all forms of abuse, but they cannot shoulder this burden alone. Texas House Republicans have equipped the agency with the tools and resources needed to ensure children do not fall through the cracks.
House Republicans made child protection the top priority of the 85th Legislative Session in 2017. By providing additional funding and comprehensive reform to the system, we fully committed to taking the necessary steps to protect the children of Texas.
While we have made dramatic improvement to our foster care system, House Republicans will remain vigilant in our charge to protect every single child entrusted in the state's custody.
