Other problems identified include incorrect renewal dates, privacy breaches such as people receiving information about others, and incorrectly linking newborns to people who weren’t are their actual parents.

Corcoran said in a memo to Governor Mike DeWine this week, she inherited the issues and found them to be “a mess” caused by the previous administration, and the failure to fix problems could cost Ohio billions in federal penalties.
