The secretary of the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet has provided hints — but few specifics — of how state budget cuts will affect his agency.
Along with most sectors of state government, the cabinet’s spending would be reduced by 9 percent over the next two fiscal years and 4.5 percent this year under Gov. Matt Bevin’s proposed budget.
Bevin has left the specifics of administering the cuts up to his cabinet secretaries.
But Secretary Charles Snavely, a former coal executive, wouldn’t say which programs in his cabinet will be cut.
“We’re undertaking a review of everything we do and determining if what we do is productive, if it’s cost effective, if there’s a better way to do it,” Snavely said.
