Feds Approve FSSA Privatization
The AP is reporting that the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services have approved the privatization plan for FSSA's welfare programs. Gov. Daniels' administration has already chosen a team of vendors led by IBM and FSSA Secretary Mitch Roob's former employer, ACS, to run the programs despite their checkered record in other states. Looks like this deal will be a go on January 1.
