Each affiliate organization of KACo has one vote on the Legislative Committee. The affiliate organizations of KACo are the Kentucky Circuit Clerks Association, the Kentucky Commonwealth Attorneys Association, the Kentucky Coroners Association, the Kentucky County Attorneys Association, the Kentucky County Clerks Association, the Kentucky County Judge/Executives Association, the Kentucky Jailers Association, the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association, the Kentucky Property Valuation Administrators Association, and the Kentucky Sheriffs Association.

In order for the KACo Legislative Committee to either support or oppose legislation, 75% of the members in attendance must vote to take that position. Following is a summary of the positions which may be taken by the Legislative Committee and what they mean.


The KACo Legislative Committee believes this legislation would be harmful to counties or county officials and will work to defeat this bill.


The KACo Legislative Committee believes this legislation would be beneficial to counties or county officials and will work to help it win passage.

Under Review

2) One or more affiliate associations of KACo are on each side of a bill and KACo does not support any affiliate association against another affiliate association.
