I don't think that anyone is questioning the importance of protecting our children from child abuse and neglect, and allocating the resources to do so, but this bill is lacking in its objective. To begin with, it is unclear what affects Covid has had on this issue, in addition to the data showing no increase activity during this timeframe. One must then ask, how can one use Covid as a justification for increasing the funding? More specifically, a justification for funding an additional $270 million for expansion and another $270 million for new research. By the way, have you noticed the bill excludes the existing funding already allocated. Aside from this, this bill does not address the core problem, which is opioid addiction, which has its own funding.
