INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Family and Social Services Administration Secretary Debra Minott says she is leaving her job in the coming month.

Minott said in a statement Monday evening that she will be “transitioning” from her job leading the state’s lead social services and welfare agency. She did not explain her reason for leaving in the statement.

Minott’s departure comes as Gov. Mike Pence and his health care team are in the middle of pitching the federal government on expanding low-income insurance using a state-run alternative to Medicaid. Minott had been one of a handful of top officials leading local meetings on the proposal in the past few weeks.
