On Feb. 6, 2018, Gov. Tom Wolf delivered his 2018-19 budget address in Harrisburg. One highlight of the spending plan includes merging the Dept. of Health and the Dept. of Human Services.
“By creating one health and human services agency, we will be able to provide care and assistance to Pennsylvanians in a more simplified, cost-effective manner that builds on shared-services delivery initiatives already implemented and ensures that all receive high-quality services and supports,” Governor Wolf said.
