Beshear signs student mental health, health worker bills
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has signed a bill allowing students to receive excused absences from school for mental health reasons.
Another measure signed by the Democratic governor aims to attract more health care workers, especially in underserved areas. He also signed a
proposal that prevents anyone convicted of various sex crimes from being certified as a peace officer. They were among 14 measures recently passed by lawmakers that Beshear signed into law on Wednesday. The governor says the bills are helping to "build a better Kentucky.”
