FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s Attorney General is asking a circuit court judge to block Gov. Andy Beshear from issuing any executive orders connected to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cameron posted this on Facebook Thursday:
And Beshear responded on Facebook:
Beshear has asked separate courts to uphold some of his executive actions to combat COVID-19. In both court filings, he says Kentucky is embroiled in “a life-and-death battle” against the coronavirus.
Last week, Cameron’s office filed a motion in Scott County Circuit Court asking if Beshear’s order for public mask wearing complies with a restraining order issued by that court. The judge did issue a temporary restraining order that blocked pandemic restrictions at agritourism businesses.
