Executive Branch Ethics
The code of ethics was enacted to promote public confidence
The Executive Branch Ethics Commission is an independent agency of the Commonwealth which has been given the responsibility of administering and enforcing the provisions of the code of ethics. The Executive Branch Code of Ethics, created by Kentucky Revised Statutes (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.
