CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A bill introduced Thursday in West Virginia House of Delegates would reorganize the state Department of Health and Human Resources.
Under House Bill 4014, the DHHR would be separated into four agencies. The bill is double referenced to the Committee on Health and Human Resources and then Finance.
“We tried to re-organize it so that different segments were consistent,” Delegate Joe Ellington, R-Mercer, one of the sponsors of the bill, said.
“That’s for oversight. A big part of that is we didn’t want oversight to be under the whole thing of the DHHR because of putting the fox in the henhouse,” Ellington said.
