Members of the Commission on Children’s Justice are getting together in Jefferson City today for their second meeting focusing on concerns about the state’s foster care system. Last week’s first meeting gave panel members the chance to get to know one another and to exchange some preliminary findings. Now, the Commission is getting down to the nitty gritty. Commission Vice Chair Glenn Norton – a Missouri Court of Appeals Judge – likes the idea of having members of the judiciary on the panel as well as lawmakers. He says this will help to implement some of the ideas put forward. The Commission came into being in response to the outcry over the death of 2-year-old Dominic James of southwest Missouri, who died while in foster care. The boy’s foster father faces charges in the youngster’s death.
