NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Human Services has cut 121 employees from its rolls.

The Tennessean reports the workers were responsible for administering welfare payments and food stamps.

The agency says the cuts made Friday are part of its efforts to reorganize its Temporary Family Assistance program. It also said caseloads have decreased and 256 vacant positions have been eliminated.

DHS says more cuts are planned, but officials are still determining details.
