Taylor Mill’s Rep. Kim Moser, a Republican, will serve on the Kentucky General Assembly’s Health and Human Services Delivery Task Force, according to an announcement from the office of House Speaker David Osborne.
The task force will meet during the interim legislative session, which is held during the summer and outside of a regular legislative session. During the interim, legislators discuss policy, but do not vote on bills.
Legislative leadership created the panel to focus on issues pertaining to health and human services delivery, as well as identifying both areas of improvement and potential solutions.
“I am honored to have been appointed to this important task force as the Cabinet for Health and Family Services encompasses so many aspects of healthcare across the state,” Moser said. “As the Kentucky legislature looks for ways to improve health outcomes across the state, it is crucial to ensure that the cabinet works effectively, including work to address the Benefit Cliff, removing the revolving door of dependency on government benefits and allowing Kentuckians to move ahead in employment opportunities.”
The Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ agencies, offices, and programs are aimed at protecting the health of all Kentuckians and providing services to help individuals meet basic needs like housing and food.
This task force began its work during the last interim session and will continue to study the organizational structure, operations, and administration of programs, policies, and procedures within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to determine if or how services can be delivered more effectively and efficiently.
Task force members will meet throughout the 2023 Interim and submit their findings and recommendations to the Legislative Research Commission by Dec. 4, 2023, for referral to the appropriate committee or committees.
Rep. Moser serves the state’s 64th House District, which includes part of Kenton County. In addition, the task force, Moser will serve on the interim joint committees on Judiciary, State Government, Budget Review Subcommittee on Health and Family Services. Moser will also serve as the co-chair on the Health Services committee.
