The U.S. government is threatening to withhold federal funding for Larned State Hospital unless the state quickly addresses problems at the central Kansas facility.  In 2015, similar issues led the feds to decertify the state's psychiatric hospital in eastern Kansas.  The facility in Osawatomie passed a recent inspection but has yet to be re-certified.

Some candidates for Kansas governor say state government has become increasingly dysfunctional. They point to revenue shortfalls, prison riots, cancelled highway projects and long-simmering disputes over school funding and the state’s privatized foster care system as proof that Kansas needs new leadership.

Kansas News Service Wednesday, October 11th

The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) has lost track of more than 70 foster children in its care. While the agency tries to do damage control, some lawmakers say they've lost confidence in the agency and its secretary, Phyllis Gilmore.
