Sen. Shelley Funke Frommeyer (R-Alexandria) was tapped to serve on the newly formed Health and Human Services Delivery System Task Force.
Funke Frommeyer represents the 24th senate district, including Bracken, Campbell, and Pendleton Counties, as well as part of Kenton County.
Formed after the passage of Senate Bill 48, the task force will study the organizational structure, operations and administration of programs, policies, and procedures within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, or CHFS. Additionally, the task force will examine Kentucky’s benefits cliff.
