To the editor, 

Representative Sondra Erickson’s recent opinion piece made it sound like the DFL was completely ignoring the legislative auditor’s report on CCAP fraud. The fact is, governor Walz’s budget included $2.1 million to detect fraud in the CCAP program. Additionally, DFL representative Dave Pinto sponsored Bill HF2319. This would increase fraud penalties and provides DHS with additional tools to detect fraud. The GOP is also taking this report seriously. 

I for one would appreciate it if Erickson worked harder at developing bipartisan legislation that can pass and spent less time throwing shade.
