CHARLESTON — Legislators got a look at Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) legislative and spending priorities Jan. 11, along with a glimpse at some early numbers from the new welfare drug testing pilot program.

Deputy DHHR Secretary Jeremiah Samples delivered the information to the House Health and Human Resources Committee.

Samples said DHHR plans to spend less in Fiscal Year 2019, which starts July 1, than it is in the current year.
