The Senate version of the Department of Human Services budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, 2014. This would appropriate $5.600 billion in gross spending, compared to $6.018 billion, which was the amount originally authorized for the current fiscal year. Of this, $3,845 billion is federal money, and the rest is from state and local taxes and fees. The decline in proposed spending is primarily due to reduced welfare and food stamp caseloads.
