I have never understood why Kentucky needs both an ag commissioner and a governor's office of agriculture policy. I strongly suspect it had to do with the two being run by different political parties. This press release gives me hope that the two may work together. Maybe the Gov. can start cost cutting by abolishing this office and letting the Ag Commissioner do his job? Naw. Ain't gonna happen.
