Colorado fails child welfare safety review

A federal review has found that Colorado's child welfare system is out of compliance with national regulations on child safety and well-being.

The review released Friday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services also found Colorado did not meet standards for abuse in home care and placement stability.

Gov. Bill Ritter created a task force following a state investigation into the deaths of 13 children whose families had previous contact with social workers. But state officials say there is no way to know if those were among the 65 cases reviewed by the federal government for its report.
