As a pediatrician, I was discouraged that the legislature is considering eliminating the state Child Fatality Task Force (June 12 news story). But I was dismayed by the comments attributed to Rep. Justin Burr that the task force “makes recommendations that cost the state money.”
Is this where we are as a state? That saving children’s lives might cost something?
