Kentucky’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services Secretary Janie Miller has resigned.
Miller was appointed as head of the cabinet by Governor Steve Beshear during his first term. The agency is responsible for overseeing Medicaid and various social services.
Miller’s resignation comes while the cabinet’s transparency regarding child abuse cases is being challenged in court. She is the second cabinet leader to resign in the recent months. She follows Patricia Wilson, who served as commissioner for the department overseeing child welfare services.
