Schweich childcare

State Auditor Tom Schweich says a recent audit revealed more than $300,000 was paid last year alone to childcare providers who provided care for less children than they claimed.

The money in question came from a fund controlled by the Department of Social Services. Schweich says the providers were claiming money they clearly weren't entitled to.

In response, the Department of Social Services says it agrees with the findings and plans to address this issue.
