CM Civics lesson: Kentucky State Government really is organized

Anyone who is confused by departments, agencies, cabinets, and what is where in state government may think it's a state of chaotic confusement. Really, though, it's very organized. The simplest chart we've found to understand who is where is at Kentucky Organizational Structure, a part of one of the easiest to use websites,

Why we looked - Trying to find the Cabinets. And the even dozen are: General Government Cabinet, Transportation Cabinet, Cabinet for Economic Development, Finance and Administriation Cabinet, Tourism, Education & Workforce Development Cabinet, Cabinet for Health & Family Services, Justice & Public Safety Cabinet, Personnel Cabinet, Labor Cabinet, Energy & Environment Cabinet, and Public Protection Cabinet.

A whole lot can be made out from the chart about how State Goverment runs although it is missing the all important Local Shot Callers and List of Lobbyists who, fortunately or unfortunately, have a huge amount of say in what gets done. - CM
