There’s a list for just about everything. And Kentucky has been making many of them all year.
But it’s not always for the best reasons. Kentuckians have high rates of heart disease, diabetes and other problems. And financially, the state government is on shaky ground.
Still, Kentucky has been recognized by national groups and publications for its good qualities.
So here’s an unvarnished round-up of the good, the bad and the ugly of Kentucky’s appearances in various rankings this year:
Below the Fold
Cabinet for Health and Family Services-backed bill deletes several commissions and numerous required reports
Majority of Kentuckians not fearful of losing insurance; Congressional Budget Office says repeal will raise costs, leave millions without insurance
Gov. Bevin appoints new University of Louisville board, renaming most from previous reorganization attempt
