Politics Up Close: Justice Dept. Investigates Utah’s Disability Services

(KCPW News) The Department of Justice has opened an investigation into Utah’s Division of Services for People with Disabilities. It stems from a complaint from the Salt Lake City based Disabled Rights Action Committee. The group says Utahns with disabilities are being forced to stay in a nursing home for several months if they want to receive care, and that violates federal law.  We were joined by Executive Director Jerry Costley and Cathy Garber, who’s been on the waiting list for services for a decade.
