    In 1922, the Governor's Executive Council originated as the Governor's Advisory Council. It reorganized in 1969 as the Governor's Executive Council. Today, the Council is known as the Governor's Cabinet.

    Meeting weekly, the Governor's Executive Council coordinates, directs, and supervises the Executive Branch of State government.

    Twenty-eight ex officio members constitute the Council. They include the Governor, who chairs the Council; the Lieutenant Governor; the Secretary of State; the secretary of each principal department of the Executive Branch of State government; the State Superintendent of Schools; the Secretary of Higher Education, and the Adjutant General. The Governor may appoint an executive secretary for the Council (Chapter 284, Acts of 1984; Chapter 246, Acts of 1988; Chapters 573 & 574, Acts of 1998; Code State Government Article, secs. 8-101 through 8-105; Public Safety Article, sec. 13-301).
