The Kentucky state legislature quickly passed a measure (HB 1) to restrict Gov. Beshear’s executive authority. It protects businesses, schools, churches, nonprofits, and local governments and allows them to remain open in accordance with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. In many cases, Gov. Beshear exceeded those guidelines and ordered schools closed, even though the CDC recommended they remain open. Beshear also forced some businesses to close while allowing others to remain open—a move that’s been seen as arbitrary. The legislature’s goal is to prevent a third government shutdown which has crippled Kentucky’s economy and kept many schools closed. Legislative requests for the governor to justify his order with data has fallen on deaf ears. Now, they’ve spoken and you can be sure he’s listening now.
