DSS director to testify before Senate panel

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The director of South Carolina's Department of Social Services is expected to testify before a Senate subcommittee created to investigate the agency.

Director Lillian Koller is scheduled to appear before the panel on Wednesday.

County coroners have testified in previous meetings about investigating the deaths of children whose care was connected to DSS. Last month, a Greenville woman told lawmakers the agency misinformed her family about the difficulties of adopting a teenage boy out of foster care.

Democratic state Sen. Joel Lourie has called on Gov. Nikki Haley to fire Koller, complaining that the director has not yet testified, despite several requests that she appear. The agency has said Koller had a stroke in December and is obeying doctor's orders.
