Senators support help for older kids

Following the drop-off of three dozen children at Nebraska hospitals under an open-ended safe haven law, many state senators support an increase in services for older kids.  But a significant number are also unsure whether a new slate of services is really the right answer for problems some say were illustrated by child drop-offs at Nebraska hospitals this fall.  In a pre-session survey of lawmakers, 22 said the state needs to increase services for older children.  Twelve said they were unsure and just two said no. Two senators skipped the question, two others gave other answers, and nine senators did not participate in the survey.
