Kentucky law has mandated since 1982 that the executive branch have no more than 33,000 employees. The good news, Mark Hebert reports, is that we have finally gotten down to that number after many years of ignoring the law.
It has been very easy to attack official Frankfort for mostly ignoring the growing $27 billion public employee benefits disaster. As such, it is only fair to give credit where it is due for this step in the right direction.
Nice work, guys.
