Making government work

As 2016 comes to a close, it’s hard to believe that January will mark the halfway point in my term as your Governor. My administration works daily to make state agencies more effective, more efficient, and more customer-focused. Over the last two years, we have focused significant resources on transforming an agency that was in dire need of reform when I took the reins of state government. That agency, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is critical because it provides vital temporary assistance and a safety net for some of our most vulnerable Nebraskans. In past years, the agency faced numerous challenges including federal fines, special investigative committees, and failed programming. With new leadership and intense process improvement initiatives, the agency is now on a new path. DHHS is focusing on their core mission of helping Nebraskans live better lives.
