House will vote on Department of Human Services layoffs

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The House will vote on a bill Tuesday, to stop the Department of Human Services from laying off its employees.

Last week, DHS sent layoff notices to its workers.

The state wants to shut down 31 offices, where people apply for things like food stamps and welfare.

DHS says the plan is to modernize and speed up the application process.
