SRS & COMMUNITY BASED SERVICES

Gov. Brownback recently issued an executive reorganization order (ERO #41) that will realign the services provided by several state agencies, including the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, the Department on Aging and the Department of Health and Environment. Unless the legislature acts to disapprove this order, it will go into effect on July 1st, changing the names of two of these departments as well as reassigning responsibilities.

The program hosted by Maureen Mahoney will reflect on the genesis of SRS with Robert Harder, who was the first person appointed to lead that department. He’ll be joined by Jim McLean, vice president for public affairs with the Kansas Health Institute.

Also appearing will be the current Secretary of SRS, Phyllis Gilmore, as well as the Secretary on Aging, Shawn Sullivan, who will explain the changes that are due to take place in their departments.
