Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear says an emergency order placing new restrictions on Capitol visitors is illegal. The opinion comes after lawmakers raised concerns about public access to the building.
Tensions are rising between a national anti-poverty campaign and Kentucky state leaders over a decision to deny the organization group access to the Capitol building. Now, one Lexington Democratic lawmaker warns it could take a judge to resolve the matter.
Anti-poverty activists want an explanation from Gov. Matt Bevin's administration and Kentucky's top police agency about what led to a rule that was cited when they were told they could enter the state Capitol only two at a time.
