Ongoing Litigation Of DHHR And A Conversation With House Speaker Hanshaw, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), which has now been split into three separate agencies, is the subject of ongoing litigation about how the agency cares for children in its care, and how it handles emails and other evidence needed for trial. Emily Rice has the story.

Also, in this show, in our latest episode of The Legislature Today, Randy Yohe spoke with House Speaker Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, on issues important to him for this general legislative session. The discussion began with artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, and ended with helping rural hospitals and supplying childcare to working families. We listen to an excerpt.
