Governor Asa Hutchinson on Lt. Governor’s Review of DHS and Recommendations

LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson released the following statement in response to the review of the Department of Human Services conducted by Lt. Governor Tim Griffin at the Governor’s request:

“Lieutenant Governor Tim Griffin spent a great deal of time on this project and conducted an extraordinary number of interviews in preparation for his report to my office. I was delighted to meet with him and hear his ideas on more effective organization of DHS. I am looking forward to reviewing these ideas with our new DHS Director Cindy Gillespie, and I have no doubt that some of his insights will be very helpful in creating a DHS atmosphere that is supportive of the employees and allows us to effectively manage the department to conserve taxpayers’ money.”
