AG Paxton Issues Statement on Today’s Foster Care Ruling

Friday, January 19, 2018 – Austin

Attorney General Ken Paxton today issued the following statement after a U.S. District Court issued a ruling on Texas’ foster care system:

“The Legislature approved and Governor Abbott signed landmark legislation last year to fund improvements in Texas’ foster care system. Unfunded and unrealistic mandates ordered by an unelected federal judge are misguided. We will immediately appeal this unfortunate decision.”
