Shipley's Cash For CASA Idea Shot Down By Governor
Executive director of the Kingsport based CASA for Kids, Connie Steere, was hoping for a statewide windfall for the Court Appointed Special Advocate program. It recruits and trains volunteers to represent abused and neglected children in court cases. She says it costs 88-thousand dollars per year, per child for each juvenile delinquent in state custody. She is pushing for more prevention and intervention. On April 26th the public can learn how a neglected child can become a productive adult. The Friday night presentation starts at 7pm and is free as hosted by the Eastman Employee Center. There was an opportunity through legislation filed by state Representative Tony Shipley to get more than 1-million dollars in new money for the program by increasing fines for the state’s seat belt law and earmarking that revenue for CASA. The idea that was shot down by the Governor says Shipley. (bg)
