Kentucky’s Attorney General Sues Governor Over Higher-Education Cuts

It’s not every day that a state’s top prosecutor takes legal action against the state’s governor, which makes what’s happening in Kentucky so interesting.

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear (D) has filed a lawsuit to stop Gov. Matt Bevin ® from slashing the budgets of the state’s public colleges and universities. Beshear says the governor violated state laws governing budget reductions when he imposed a $41 million, or 4.5 percent, spending cut in the last three months of the fiscal year.
