Two high-ranking deputies are leaving their posts at the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the state's sprawling, $17.5 billion social service agency, in an unexpected move confirmed Thursday by Commissioner Tony Lourey.

The abrupt departure of two veteran administrators sets up an early test of the leadership of Lourey - who lobbied hard for the job after serving in the state Senate for more than a decade - as well as for the new administration of Gov. Tim Walz, who appointed Lourey for the top job. No reasons were given for the near-simultaneous exits.
