Lingering government shutdown could impact DHHR programs

Posted:

CHARLESTON (WVVA) - The Department of Health and Human Resources in West Virginia says its programs will be unaffected by the government shutdown -- at least for the rest of the week.

If the shutdown continues beyond this week, DHHR Cabinet Secretary Karen Bowling says the department will conduct a "day-by-day analysis."

Bowling released the following statement on the situation:

"Through our initial analysis, we feel confident that all of DHHR's programs can sustain through the rest of this week ... The ever-changing environment of the federal government will continue to determine the impact of DHHR programs.  If the federal shutdown continues beyond this week, we will perform a day-by-day analysis."
