Executive Branch Ethics Commission
The Executive Branch Ethics Commission, authorized by Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS) 11A.060, is an independent agency of the Commonwealth with the responsibility of administering and enforcing the provisions of the code of ethics.
The Executive Branch Code of Ethics created by KRS Chapter 11A, effective July 14, 1992, establishes the ethical standards that govern the conduct of all executive branch employees. The code of ethics was enacted to promote public confidence in the government of the Commonwealth and its employees.
The mission of the Executive Branch Ethics Commission is to promote the ethical conduct of elected officials, officers and other employees in the executive branch of state government through: administering a program of training and education on the code of ethics; providing guidance to state employees concerning their ethical conduct; enforcing the provisions of the code of ethics; interpreting the code of ethics through the issuance of advisory opinions; registering executive agency lobbyists; and recommending legislation to the General Assembly.
The Commission’s staff provide state employees, executive agency lobbyists and the public with information, guidance and training aimed at promoting ethical conduct of executive branch employees
