Republican lawmakers ramped up the pressure on DFL Gov. Tim Walz over the shakeup at the Department of Human Services.

Republican lawmakers ramped up the pressure on DFL Gov. Tim Walz on Thursday, demanding answers about the recent leadership shake-up at the Department of Human Services. The massive social service agency has seen the resignations of two top officials - since rescinded - and ultimately the departure of Commissioner Tony Lourey and his chief of staff.

"The flurry of resignations, appointments and rescinded resignations has raised significant concerns from my office, from the press, and from the 1 million people served by DHS," said state Sen. Michelle Benson, R-Ham Lake, who is chair of a key health care committee with oversight of the $17.5 billion agency.
