Human Services Can Save Money

Minnesota Department of Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson says her department can become more efficient and therefore save taxpayer money as the state battles with a $5.1 billion revenue shortfall.

The department controls 30% of the state budget.  Of that, 80 percent is allocated to the health care of the elderly, disabled and vulnerable children. 

Commissioner Jesson tells KLKS News, they can save money by improving the way they purchase health care procedures, and demanding a lower price.

Jesson just completed a tour of the Brainerd department facilities and said she is confident in the effectiveness of department employees here.
