After a year and a half of study, the White House rolled out what it says would be the most ambitious restructuring in the federal government’s history.  Among a long list of changes, the plan would merge the departments of Education and Labor, consolidate food safety programs within a new Agriculture Department agency, and restructure the Department of Health and Human Services into the new Department of Health and Public Welfare.

Robert Shea is a former associate director for administration and government performance in the Office of Management and Budget. He is now a principal at Grant Thornton Public Sector and he joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to share some initial impressions of the Trump administration’s reorganization proposal.
