As a monthly post I am including the following information. For those, who want to learn more about their state relating to there concern, this may be valuable information. This also goes to Advocates, who are seeking Reform.
So many times, I have stated one needs to know ALL the story. Not to mention, and with a high degree of certainty, those who work for the Agency, really don't know all the Statutes, Policies, and Procedures , etc, that they are bound to. One basic reason, most of the manuals are too Thick.
