Rhode Island's Health and Human Services secretary has told lawmakers that delays continue for thousands of applicants for state benefits because of problems with its computer system.

Eric Beane told the House Oversight Committee that around 4,000 applications remained backlogged at the end of January. Around half of those are for long-term elder care.
