Walz To Announce His Pick For Minnesota DHS Commissioner

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gov. Tim Walz is set to announce his appointment to serve as Minnesota Department of Human Services’ Commissioner.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services has an $18 billion budget, 6,700 employees and serves roughly 1 million Minnesotans — many of whom are the state’s most vulnerable citizens. But the DHS is going through a rocky time this summer.
