Alabama Constitutional Officers

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

 

The State of Alabama derives its current structure and organization from the Constitution of Alabama of 1901 and its amendments. According to Article V of the Constitution, the Executive Department consists of the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, state auditor, secretary of state, state treasurer, the commissioner of agriculture, the superintendent of education, and a sheriff for each county. Although Amendment No. 284 effectively removed the office of the superintendent from the Executive Department of state government, the superintendent of education currently is a member of the governor's cabinet.
