Gov. Steve Beshear
  • "Gov. Steve Beshear said Tuesday he will present to the state legislature a constitutional amendment to expand gambling. 'We’re going to go all out to get expanded gaming on the ballot,' Beshear told reporters after a two-hour parade down Capital Avenue to celebrate his inauguration to another four-year term." [Bluegrass Politics]
     
  • "An agreement has been reached between the University of Louisville and Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell that will end lawsuits he filed over hospital merger documents. O’Connell went to court seeking to force the university and U of L Hospital to turn over financial and other records related to the hospital’s pending merger with two other health care companies. O’Connell argued that the records should be made public because they involve taxpayer funds. U of L says the documents were not turned over in an Open Records request because they’re protected under Kentucky law. Under the agreement signed today, U of L will turn over some of the records O’Connell sought and they’ll soon be available for public viewing." [WFPL]
