Senior Producer Lou DiVizio digs through the controversy surrounding a new committee at the state’s Children Youth and Families Department. He asks Sec. Barbara Vigil why the first two meetings of the steering committee were been closed to the public, and how she plans to help the department regain community trust.

Plus, Lou catches up with the watchdog group New Mexico Foundation for Open Government to ask about this particular situation, and the work it's been doing for years to push CYFD to be more transparent.
