The 1999 Legislative session created the Kansas Children's Cabinet to oversee the expenditures from the Master Tobacco Settlement. Ninety-five percent of the state's portion of the Master Tobacco Settlement was dedicated to improving the health and well-being of children and youth in the state.

The Kansas Children's Cabinet has been directed by the statute to undertake these four overarching responsibilities:
1. Advising the Governor and the legislature regarding the uses of the moneys credited to the Children's Initiatives Fund; 2. Evaluating programs which utilize Children's Initiatives Fund moneys; 3. Assisting the Governor in developing and implementing a coordinated, comprehensive delivery system to serve children and families of Kansas; 4. Supporting the prevention of child abuse and neglect through the Children's Trust Fund.
